CGHS Annual Cemetery Walk to Highlight Notable Women
During the Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in Wyoming

Discover some of the region’s notable females during the Cheyenne Genealogical & Historical Society’s annual Lakeview Cemetery Walk, on Saturday, August 24, 2019. The living history presentation, “Remember the Ladies,” a tribute to the 150th anniversary of women’s suffrage in Wyoming, begins at the main gate of Lakeview Cemetery off Seymour Ave. and features interesting characters who played large and small parts in Cheyenne’s frontier history.

This year there will be seven new female characters added and two start-times

for the two hour narrated walking tour.

The first tour will begin at 9 a.m. and the second tour will begin at 10 a.m. Members of

CGHS in costume will portray Esther Hobart Morris, Nellie Tayloe Ross, E. Mason

Smith, ‘Apple Annie,’ Helen Frances Warren Pershing, Daze Bristol, Lucy Phillips,

Amolia Post and others, most of whose graves are located in or near Lakeview Cemetery.

Participants who want to attend either of the tours for the Cemetery Walk should make reservations by calling Sue at 307-286-6239. There is a $5 entrance fee for each adult,

$1 for youth and children; preschoolers are admitted free.


Participants should begin to gather 15-20 minutes before the start of each group.

Walkers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and sun protection, and

bring drinking water if desired. Proceeds help fund genealogy book acquisitions

for the Laramie County Library by the Cheyenne Genealogical and Historical Society.
