Cemetery Walk

June 9 - June 10

Every June, the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society honors the lives and contributions of past Galenians with its annual Cemetery Walk. Local performers portray select individuals buried in Galena’s Greenwood Cemetery and recount key episodes of their lives. A seated, indoor performance will be held at Grace Episcopal Church in Galena on June 15.

“The Cemetery Walk is a very personal way for Galenians to celebrate our town’s past,” says Ronn Toebaas, Galena-based writer and director. “Combining the talents of our great assortment of local performers with the stories to past Galenians who lived rich, enthralling lives results in memorable presentations.”

The museum thanks Mr. Toebaas, who writes and directs the performance; Scott Wolfe and Kris Chapman for historical research; Bryan Ackerman, the stage manage; Michelle Blanchard, costumer; and the many actors who will bring these past Galenians to life.

Proceeds from the Cemetery Walk go to the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society
