Visitors will be welcomed to the historic Bluff City Cemetery which has provided the final resting place for area residents since 1889. Once you arrive, you will be assigned a group number and a guide that will lead your group on a 70-minute tour that showcases the gravesites of seven former residents. At the gravesite, an actor in a period costume will bring the person to life! Hear their story and the impact they had on the history of Elgin.
The group will rotate to the next site on the walk to meet another past Elgin resident until all sites have been visited. The entire walk is about 3/4 mile and there are chairs available at each performance site. This year, there will be an expanded capacity for bus tours to accommodate visitors with limited mobility.
