Ishpeming Cemetery Tour
Where: Ishpeming Cemetery
After a year's absence, the Ishpeming Area Historical Society will bring back its popular evening cemetery tour in August. Join us for one of our 2021 Ishpeming Cemetery Tours hosted by Ishpeming historian Karen Kasper.
Learn about H. O. Young, an Ishpeming citizen elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.
Find out why the tree trunk gravestone is in our cemetery and who it belongs to.
Also on the tour will be a Civil War veteran, a miner killed in the Barnes Hecker disaster, and more.
This year's cemetery tour kicks off on Tuesday, August 3, followed by tours every Tuesday on August 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st with one additional tour on Thursday August 26th.
All tours begin at 6:30 pm and will last approximately one hour. We will meet in the front of the cemetery at the sexton's office and there will be a $10 suggested donation for the tour with children 12 and under free of charge.
All proceeds from the tour will go to benefit the Ishpeming Area Historical Society.
This is a walking tour and in case of inclement weather, the tour will be cancelled.
The Ishpeming cemetery is located at 1705 N. Second Street in Ishpeming.
