Walk to be Presented During Laramie County Fair Week  -- August 10th

Meet some of Cheyenne’s famous and infamous characters during the
Cheyenne Genealogical & Historical Society’s annual Lakeview
Cemetery Walk, “Tiptoe Through the Tombstones” on
Friday, August 10, 2018. This living history presentation begins
at the main gate of Lakeview Cemetery off Seymour Ave. near
Pershing Blvd. and features a number of interesting characters
who played large and small parts in Cheyenne’s frontier history. There is an entrance fee of $5 per individual for the two-hour
narrated tour which starts promptly at 9:30 a.m. Children age 10 and
under are admitted free. Participants should begin to gather at 9:00-9:15 a.m.

Walkers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and sun
protection, and bring drinking water if desired.  For participants
who want to attend the Cemetery Walk but find it difficult to walk
the route, space in golf carts can be reserved before 6 August, by
calling Sharon Field at 632-6676.

Members of CGHS portray in costume many notable residents
including Esther Hobart Morris, Sheriff John Slaughter, Jim Kidd,
Nellie Tayloe Ross, Mrs. E. Mason Smith, Willie Nickell, ‘Apple Annie,’
Helen Francis Warren Pershing and others, all whose graves are
located in or near Lakeview Cemetery.

Proceeds help fund genealogy book acquisitions for the Laramie County
Library by the Cheyenne Genealogical and Historical Society.
