BHS Autumn Cemetery Tour

Exciting news, friends!

The BHS is hosting a bus tour of interesting cemeteries around Paris, Ontario. Join us for a crisp fall afternoon tour of some of the older burial grounds in the county.

We'll be visiting four cemeteries, each with something unique or unusual to offer. Guests will be given a research package with info on each of the sites, interesting stones at each location, and the history of the symbols on Victorian-era gravestones and Victorian funeral customs.


Guests will board the shuttle at Myrtleville House Museum. You're welcome to bring your cameras and your own stone-rubbing tools such as tracing paper and charcoal.

The site list includes the well-known and highly-visible Paris Cemetery, as well as some older, inactive cemeteries off the beaten path. We'll be sharing local ghost stories and tales of old cemetery superstitions en route.

After the tour, the shuttle will return to Myrtleville House Museum for some light refreshments. 
Call 519-752-2483 or email to RSVP!
