Volunteers from the Society will again be conducting walking tours of the East Division of Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. Come learn about the notable Rochesterians interred in the oldest section of this historic cemetery and the meaning of some of the monuments and their decorations.
More sites have been added to the tour this year so there will be two separate excursions. Tour I encompassing East Sections 1-13 will be on Sunday, May 22 at 1:00 pm. During Tour II on Sunday, June 26 at 1:00 pm we will cover East Sections 18-22.
The tours were mapped out by Joe Vitello and Maureen Whalen; Maureen will be your tour guide.
The cost is $5.00 per person per tour, payable in cash or by a check made out to the Greece Historical Society. We’ll meet at the north Gatehouse on the east side of Lake Avenue prior to the tours.
Here is the complete list of tours scheduled for the summer; all are on Sundays at 1:00 pm:
Tour I: East Sections 1-13
Tour II: East Sections 18-26
