Memorial Day Walking Tour of the Redding Cemetery
May 27 2013 at 06:00 PM
Redding Cemetery—Cemeteries are “history books” that give insight regarding important changes that have occurred in the local area and in society as a whole. The Redding Cemetery is the oldest remaining cemetery in Redding and is the last resting place for many important, famous, and notorious people who lived in or traveled through the area. The walks focuses on the history of cemeteries in the U.S.; symbolism found in cemetery traditions and headstones; and the inter-relationship between people buried here. Actually, history at the cemeteries’ site goes back before there was a town of Redding.
There is no cost to participate.
Meet at the Corner of Eureka Way and Continental Street.
