They say visiting a cemetery is a unique way to connect with stories from the past.
There will be people stationed at various locations throughout the cemetery to share interesting stories about some of the specific gravesites. Actually the people that have been laid to rest there.
The presentations will be attendees a chance to hear about individuals who impacted the lives of the Kenyon community.

I researched but couldn't find when the Kenyon Cemetery Association was started or the year the cemetery was established. The Kenyon Cemetery is located along Cross Street and on Mogren Hill.
