Lanterns & Tombstones Cemetery Walk coming June 3rd

From Mike Watson and Dave Thomas.

The next Columbia City Cemetery Walking Tour will take place at 7pmCT this Friday night, June 3, 2022, in conjunction with Columbia's "To-the-Nines" downtown event.

Dave Thomas and Mike Watson will lead participants through various parts of the 210 year old graveyard, pointing out bits of interesting lore along the way.

This is a walking tour through the historic cemetery and participants are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes and bring your enthusiasm. Small flashlights will be provided to aid you in winding your way on the Tour.

The Tour will take place each month throughout the year, culminating with the annual Silent City Tour in October of 2022. Each month the Tour and narration will be different from the previous months.

There will be some specific information repeated each month for emphasis and to inform those who have not previously been on the Tour.

The Tour will form at the edge of the Judicial Center parking area at Monroe Street, and will proceed up the drive to the Historic Cemetery. We will return to the same location.

Hope to see you there!

If it is raining or there is serious threat of storms, the tour will be postponed until the next scheduled date--July 1st.

For more information:; or call the Adair Genealogy and History Research Center, 270-380-1024.
