Tales & Tombstones, A Candlelit Tour of Lombard's Oldest Cemetery

Friday, October 2, 2020

Tales & Tombstones is a candlelit tour of the oldest cemetery in Lombard, Babcock's Grove Cemetery. The Lombard Historical Society in partnership with the Lombard Park District invites you to an evening in the oldest cemetery in Lombard. Staff and volunteers will guide attendees on a candlelit tour through the cemetery where they will meet past residents of Lombard that lived here over a hundred years ago. Listen to the bizarre, admirable, and ridiculous things that these people did that, really, when you think of it, are pretty much the same types of things that people do today.

This program is geared toward adults, but kids ages three and up (accompanied by adults) are welcome too. Wear sensible shoes. The terrain is bumpy. Feel free to bring your flashlight. Sorry, it is unsafe at night for strollers, wheelchairs or baby carriers.
Starting times – (Ten people per time slot) 6:00, 6:15, 6:30, 6:45, 7:00, 7:15, 7:30, 7:45, 8:00 pm
Each tour time will consist of no more than ten people, to allow for appropriate social distancing. Please bring a copy of your receipt or the electronic receipt received at the time of registration. No cancellations or refunds after Thursday, October 1, 2020
