Rockford Historical Society’s Annual Cemetery Walk
June 5, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Haunted Rockford’s own Kathi Kresol will be joining the Rockford Historical Society for this year’s Cemetery Walk. Each year the Society selects one of Rockford’s major cemeteries for the Cemetery Walk. This will be the Society’s first time in Willwood Burial Park!
Volunteers select individuals interred in the cemetery, research the person’s past, and interpret their findings for those who attend the “walk”. The interpreters are often dressed in costumes of the period associated with their subjects. They often bring related items to enhance their presentations given near the grave sites of their chosen individuals.
Face Masks are required for this event.
The walk is open to the public and free of charge though donations will be accepted. Registration is not required.
