McLean County Museum of History Extends Virtual Cemetery Walk

The annual cemetery walk hosted by the McLean County Museum of History not only has gone virtual this year, but it has been so successful, they are extending the opportunity to view it to the end of the month.


Educator at the Museum, Candace Summers indicates the cemetery walk is intended to tell the stories of the people buried at Evergreen Cemetery in McLean County and provide education about why cemeteries are so important. While educational, it has also had an impact on issues in cemeteries. 



Summers indicates a cemetery is more than just a burial ground with names and dates etched in stone. Often times it is kids asking the questions, but she enjoys explaining why a cemetery is such a special place.



The cemetery walk has been made available for free to youth. Summers says this has been a wild success.



Visit mchistory.org and find information on the cemetery walk. Summers indicates they have extended the ability to view the cemetery walk until December 1.
