History comes alive at Evergreen Cemetery walk

Did you know that over 30 of the early pioneers who came to Dover Township (Westlake) before 1820 are buried in historic Evergreen Cemetery? On Saturday, May 21, at noon, you are invited to tour this historic cemetery at 29535 Center Ridge Rd. and meet many of those pioneers and hear their story.

After a blessing of the new cemetery fence, guests will be led on a guided tour of the cemetery, with stops at the grave sites of some of our most prominent ancestors – portrayed by knowledgeable, costumed volunteers – including: Leverett Johnson, Walter Clague, Noah Crocker, Asher Cooley and Abigail (Cahoon) Johnson.

After the tour, join us at Westlake Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Rd., for light refreshments.
