Dedication for "The Ladies" - Friday, May 5, 2017 - 7 p.m. - Oak Grove Cemetery near the large family monuments
Dedication for the Ladies of Oak Grove Cemetery and Civil War Ghost Walk - Friday, May 5 - 7 p.m. - Oak Grove Cemetery - Although men were the initial movers on the establishment of Oak Grove Cemetery, it took the women to help it attain its full glory. The top of the original gate at Oak Grove has been retrieved from the woods behind Potter’s Field and displayed atop a base of field stones.
Please plan to meet at the gate that is at the end of West Street on Montgomery Street for a short walk to the fountain circle. Along the way you’ll hear stories of some of the more interesting residents of Oak Grove. Waiting in the area around the circle will be re-enactors from the 18th Michigan Infantry, who will come alive as ghosts” of some of the Hillsdale County men and women who were involved in the Civil War. A brief ceremony honoring “The Ladies” will be followed by an additional guided tour of more interesting Oak Grove residents on the way out of the cemetery. There is no cost for this event.
WEAR YOUR WALKING SHOES!
