Springfield Cemetery Tour
Sunday, October 20, 2019

SPT will host our seventh annual cemetery tour on Sunday, October 20th. For the second year, we will hold the tour at Springfield Cemetery, 171 Maple Street. Docent-led groups will visit the graves of several famous or infamous Springfield residents, where costumed interpreters will assume the role of that resident. This is a great way to learn a little local history, enjoy the beautiful scenery and get outdoors!

Hour-long walking tours will depart every fifteen minutes starting at 1:00PM. Advance ticket purchase is highly recommended as tours will sell out. The final tour will be held at 2:00PM. Tickets are available online only.

If utilizing an SPT free tour pass, please contact info@springfieldpreservation.org to reserve a spot on a tour.
