2018 Free Walking Tours: Trees and Linn Grove Cemetery

P6060065

The Greeley Historic Preservation Commission invites the public to a walking tour in the of history and trees of Linn Grove Cemetery, on Monday, June 18th at 6:30 p.m.  City Forestry Manager Shiloh Hatcher and Linn Grove Cemetery Manager David Naill will lead the tour through a portion of Greeley’s historic cemetery.  As communities were constructed, so too were the resting places of our loved ones. Participants will catch glimpses of history from 1874 to the present.  

The walking tour will also include brief stops to admire select historic trees and a few new tree selections, as we discover the foundation of Linn Grove Cemetery from yesterday and into the future.  This free public tour begins at the main building at Linn Grove Cemetery, 1700 Cedar Avenue. 

No reservations are required, but participants should wear walking shoes and bring a water bottle.

The walking tours provide citizens with a chance to hear about and see interesting sites with historical, cultural and architectural significance to Greeley.  The 2018 walking tours will be held in various locations around town.  The remainder of the tour schedule for 2018 is as follows:
