Cemetery Tours

July 25, 2018 - 19:00 - 20:00

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 19:00 on Wednesday, repeating until August 22, 2018

The Smiths Falls Heritage House welcomes you to rediscover their Saved by the Bell Cemetery Tours!

Trained tour guides will lead visitors through the historic Smiths Falls Cemeteries, discovering superstitions, symbolism and cemetery design. Each cemetery also holds an amazing record of former residents with stories of missionaries, veterans, dignitaries and everyday people alike.

Have you ever wondered if there were any grave robbers in your neighbourhood? Or why we were taught never to walk on a grave? Or our personal favourite… what it means to be “Saved by the Bell”?

You will never look at a cemetery the same way again!

Please dress for the weather and bring comfortable walking shoes. This weekly event will be cancelled only in the case of a downpour or lightning storm. Pre-Registration is requested by calling 613-283-6311 or emailing [email protected] Tours are $10 per adult or $5 for those 18 and younger. Cemetery location schedules will be announced in July!

**Please note private cemetery tour bookings are available upon request for groups of 5 or more people and may be subject to a group discount**
