Tombstone Detectives on Thursday

MARQUETTE – The Marquette Regional History Center presents: Tombstone Detectives, a family friendly walking tour by the Marquette Regional History Center from 1-3 p.m. Thursday.

Meet at Park Cemetery main gate for this walking tour designed for all ages that will include stories of every day and exceptional characters in Upper Peninsula history who are buried in Park Cemetery. These people have many fascinating tales to tell, some will “come alive” to share theirs. Meet a Civil War veteran, a Marquette pioneer girl, a ship captain and a young artist. Enjoy this active walk throughout the cemetery; try some tombstone rubbings and investigate symbols and clues.

This event will be great for all ages. The suggested donation is $5. Visit www.marquettehistory.org or call 906-226-3571 for more info.
