Ages 13 and up can step back in time for a haunting visit to Sterling Grove Cemetery. Hear about the 19th century community of Sterling Township pioneers who now reside in this quaint final resting place. A guided walking tour includes a brief history of the cemetery, its features, and a glimpse at the lives of some of those long-gone early settlers. The tour lasts approximately 90 minutes. When this special outing concludes, return to the library for donuts and cider.
Busses will depart from the library for three tours starting at 2 p.m., 4 p.m., and 6 p.m. Please dress for the weather and wear suitable shoes for walking and standing. There are no seats or restrooms at the site. Furthermore, 6 p.m. tour attendees should bring a flashlight.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If it rains on Oct. 19, tours will be conducted on Oct. 26. By registering, participants agree to both dates, as there are no refunds.
