Meet some of Cheyenne’s departed famous and infamous characters during the Cheyenne Genealogical & Historical society’s annual Lakeview Cemetery Walk, “Tiptoe Through the Tombstones,” on Friday, August 11, 2017. The walk will start promptly at 9:30 a.m. and participants are encouraged to arrive about 9 a.m.
This living history presentation begins at the main gate of Lakeview Cemetery at Seymour Avenue and features a number of interesting characters who played large and small parts in Cheyenne’s frontier history. They are portrayed in costume by members of the Cheyenne Genealogical & Historical Society.
The cost is $5 per individual with children under 10 free. Walkers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and sun protection, and bring drinking water if desired. The cemetery and the Cheyenne City golf course will provide a limited number of golf carts for those who may not be able to walk for the entire two-hour narrated tour.
All the proceeds will be used to purchase books for the Special Collections Room of the Laramie County Library. For further information please call Sharon at 632-6676 or Judy at 632-2623.
