Last week the Historical Society of our town hosted a cemetery tour. It was advertised like this:
"Take a stroll through the cemetery and meet some of Allendale's first: First settlers, first storekeeper, first veterans and more."
This wasn't meant to be scary, but educational and a tribute to those
who lived here before we did. It was a beautiful evening, and there was a
good turnout of people taking the tour.
I learned a lot about our local history and found it interesting. I'm told that they plan to learn more about other people buried here and do this again.
