Historic Cemetery Crawls
The Stearns History Museum is proud to present a brand new program – Beyond the Grave… Historic Cemetery Crawls. Join us as we tour cemeteries and meet historical figures along the way. Each character will come alive from beyond the grave to tell their story.
The first crawl is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, and will take place at Northstar Cemetery, 1901 Cooper Ave. S., St Cloud, MN 56301, and the second crawl at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5,, at Calvary Cemetery, 2341 Roosevelt Rd. in St. Cloud.
Crawlers will meet at the cemetery, tour the most historic gravesites, and meet four historical characters buried in the cemetery. After the crawl, participants are invited to the Stearns History Museum to enjoy a dessert bar and coffee. The historical characters will follow up their presentations with a question and answer session at the museum. Each crawl is $25, or both crawls for $45. Limit 30 people per crawl.
