Historic Cemeteries Tour
September 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
History is alive at Downtown Gresham’s three cemeteries! These places of quiet contemplation are rich in information about our local heritage, if you know where to look. Volunteer tour guide Mike Andrews leads you on a walking tour that is by turns colorful, humorous, and poignant as it explores unexpected stories of the Gresham area.
This one-hour tour covers Gresham Pioneer, Escobar, and White Birch cemeteries, which are all adjacent to each other. Parking is available at West Gresham Elementary or at nearby Main City Park, and the cemeteries are easily accessible to bicyclists arriving from the Springwater Trail. Tours will meet in the east parking lot of West Gresham Elementary.
All tours are free and open to the public. No RSVP is required.
