Cemetery Tour and Presentation
How the Streets Got Their Names
Many of Norristown’s streets are named after the prominent individuals and families who resided in the area in the nineteenth century. This event will feature a walking tour and presentation that takes a look at the stories of these people and families that have formed Norristown’s identity. The walking tour will begin at 11:00 followed by light refreshments inside the Cemetery’s gatehouse with a presentation from 11:45 pm to 12:30 pm. The presentation will be provided by Barry Rauhauser, Executive Director of the Historical Society of Montgomery County.
