Fernwood Cemetery Tour Set for September 24

A tour of Fernwood Cemetery is planned for September 24, starting at 9am. Tour will begin outside the parks and recreation office at Fernwood Cemetery and will last approximately 1 ½ hours.

As the City of Henderson’s oldest cemetery, Fernwood is steeped in history and tradition. Its residents include former governors, wealthy tobacco magnates, brave soldiers and the founder of Mother’s Day. The Depot Community Room’s walking tour will explore the lives of the cemetery’s famous and infamous inhabitants, and share with visitors the nearly forgotten stories of its ordinary but interesting citizens.

The tour is sponsored by the Depot Community Room, in partnership with the Henderson Parks and Recreation Department.
