Event Details

Performers of the Cemetery Walk will be exploring the rugged lives of early settlers, sharing stories of prosperity and the challenges of intersecting cultures, politics, war and slavery.

The Cemetery Walk is one of the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society’s major fundraising events. A team of researchers, actors and supporters put countless hours of preparation into each year’s walk to create a remarkable experience.

Writer and Director Ronn Toebaas relies heavily on research by local librarian Scott Wolfe and Historical Society Board Member Kris Chapman to find the facts behind the people who are portrayed in each walk.
