The Wake Forest Cemetery Advisory Board (CAB) is sponsoring its annual historic walking tour at the Wake Forest Cemetery on Saturday, May 11, from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The cemetery is located at 400 N. White St., less than a quarter-mile from downtown Wake Forest. Free and open to the public, the self-guided tour will celebrate the lives of the men and women who established the Wake Forest community, as well as its culture and destiny. Docents will be stationed at various locations throughout the cemetery to share interesting stories about specific gravesites, as well as photographs of loved ones bearing their ancestral names.
Parents are encouraged to bring their children to the tour as a special handout will be provided highlighting interesting points of interest throughout the cemetery grounds. Designed to promote healthy interaction between a child and their parents or accompanying adult, the photos and sites highlighted in the handout will help educate visitors about the cemetery’s historical significance.
