Cemetery Walk – Indoor Event

June 14 @ 7:30 pm - June 15 @ 8:30 pm


Each summer, the Historical Society produces a special event that highlights the stories of past generations of Galenians. We do that through Cemetery Walk, a combination of history and the performing arts in which actual past citizens of our historical community come to life to tell their stories.

Cemetery Walk 2018 was a remarkable and emotional experience as we explored the lives of past Galenians who lived through World War I. We thank the many actors and behind-the-scenes volunteers who make this great event possible.

This year’s Walk will be at the Old City Cemetery, where we will see portrayals of some of the earliest Galena settlers.

Old City Cemetery is located at North Dodge Street, between Hill and Washington streets.

Under the direction of Ronn Toebaas, rehearsals for Cemetery Walk 2019 are heavily underway. We will release more details soon.

On June 8 and 9, shows run every 20 minutes between 2 and 4:30 p.m.

In addition to the June 8 and June 9 dates, an indoor presentation will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 14, at Grace Episcopal Church in Galena.

Tickets are $15 each, and proceeds benefit the Galena History Museum and Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society and its mission to preserve the legacy of our region.
