Historic cemeteries group to lead tour of abandoned cemeteries
October 24, 2019
WALLA WALLA—A new nonprofit organization, Walla Walla Historic Cemeteries, will be leading a tour of three abandoned cemeteries on Saturday, October 26. The event is sponsored by the local chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America in honor of International Archaeology Day.
Participants will board a bus provided by Walla Walla University at 9:00 a.m. which will take them to three area cemeteries. Attendees will have a chance to tour each site and participate in an assessment of its needs, as well as help with plans for mapping each cemetery and looking at unmarked graves.
