10th Annual Washington Green Cemetery Tour                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Friday, October 27, 2017, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Groups of visitors will meet at the Museum and be led by Tour Guides dressed in vintage attire along a path of 1,000 luminaries through the Cemetery to meet some of Washington's unforgettable residents from the past. Unique, memorable and familiar citizens from the last century will be brought to life by costumed actors who will tell stories of their life; some amusing, some sad, some tragic — even horrific!

Cemetery Tour attendees should come to the Gunn Historical Museum and form a line to get numbered tickets for the tours, handed out on a first-come first-serve basis, starting at 6:15 p.m. on Oct. 27, and continuing through the evening until the tickets run out. Tours of the Cemetery depart from the Gunn Museum in groups of eighteen people every eight minutes between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. and last approximately one hour. Unfortunately tickets can not be reserved and specific times can't be requested. While there is no fee to attend the Cemetery Tour, donations are greatly appreciated.

A Halloween themed movie will be shown in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Library where attendees can wait inside for their tour group to depart. Visitors are encouraged to bring a flashlight, dress warmly, and wear comfortable walking shoes. The Gunn Museum is located at 5 Wykeham Road, at the intersection of Wykeham Road and Route 47, in Washington, Connecticut. Parking at the Gunn is limited, please carpool and use nearby lots and side streets.

The rain date for the Cemetery Tour is Sunday, October 29, 2017 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
