Rescheduled Tree Tour at Linn Grove Cemetery

LinnGroveTrees

The Greeley Historic Preservation Commission invites the public to the rescheduled walking tour of history and trees of Linn Grove Cemetery, on Monday, August 20 at 6 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 were held in various locations around town. 

The Historic Preservation Office welcomes the public to share ideas for future walking tours.  For more information, contact Betsy Kellums in the Historic Preservation Office at betsy.kellums@greeleygov.com or 970-350-9222.
