Coming back from vacation and need a good way to start your work week? Join us for an early morning tour of Montgomery Cemetery! The Historical Society of Montgomery County announces a morning walking tour of History Montgomery Cemetery on Monday, July 12, 2021. This walking tour will be followed by light morning refreshments.
With almost 6,000 known burials, Historic Montgomery Cemetery holds the remains of some of the most prominent citizens, veterans and reformers in the county and nation. From five Civil War generals to many captains of industry, it tells the story of the nation through the lives it represents. The entrance to Montgomery Cemetery is at the end of Hartranft Avenue, off of West Main Street, Norristown. Parking during the event will be made available inside the Cemetery gates.
Bring your camera and a pair of shoes that are able to get wet since the grass will likely be wet from dew!
Tickets for the event are $10 and include the walking tour and refreshments. Tickets are limited; to reserve a seat call 610-272-0297 to reserve your spot.
