Living History of Oak Grove
This year's tour was Saturday, November 3, 2018. Thank you to the 75+ people who joined us on a beautiful day and had some fun in the cemetery. Our historic figures were Franklin J. Starr, Dr. William Fears, Helen Vinson, Louis M. Hanna, and Baxter Duncan. A very special thanks to our actors who did wonderful work (in order of actors): Brent Haynes, George Patterson, Mary Tucker, Lisa Bentley and kids, and Wil Carter.
This tour is an opportunity to learn about history from those who "lived" it! We usually have between five and seven individuals or couples who will take five to seven minutes telling the audience about their lives and the world in which they lived. The "spirits" do not answer questions nor do they know about anything past their death. Although we usually have a limited number of chairs at each spot, this is a walking tour through a historic and active cemetery, so visitors must be prepared to traverse uneven ground.
