Scandinavian Cemetery Walk with Rockford Historical Society
Saturday, September 30th 10:00 AM- 1:00PM Scandinavian Cemetery 1700 Rural St, Rockford, IL 61107
Join us as we partner with the Rockford Historical Society to share the history of the stories behind the stones at Scandinavian Cemetery on September 30th from 10am-1pm!
Volunteers select individuals interred in the cemetery, research the person’s past, and interpret their findings for those who attend the walk. The interpreters are often dressed in costumes of the period associated with their subjects. Some of the interpreters also bring related items to enhance their presentations given near the gravesites of their chosen individuals.
This event is free but donations to the Rockford Historical Society will be accepted at the event and are appreciated. If you would like to volunteer as an interpreter or have any questions about the event, please contact 815-963-5559 or email email@example.com
