Preview How Rochester's History Will Come to Life This Weekend
Members of the Rochester-Avon Historical Society will be in costume re-enacting the stories of the residents who reside in Mount Avon Cemetery on a guided tour Saturday.
The Rochester–Avon Historical Society will conduct a living history presentation that portrays several characters from Rochester’s past during a series of guided tours on Saturday.
Tour groups will be led through Mount Avon Cemetery as they hear "Stories in the Stones" about the lives of people who are buried there told in first person by the actors. It's a family-friendly event combines community theater and local history.
Timed tours will depart from the municipal parking lot at Third and Walnut Streets during specific times from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday. Ticket holders will be transported to and from the cemetery via shuttle van. Tickets are $15 per person; tours will be held rain or shine. Tickets may be purchased at the Regional Chamber of Commerce office, 71 Walnut Street, Suite 110, or on the day of the event at the shuttle stop in the parking lot. The number of tickets is limited, so advance purchase is recommended.
The Mount Avon Cemetery Walk is supported by the sponsorships of Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge, Pixley Funeral Home and Potere-Modetz Funeral Home.
