Historical Tour of the Fort Douglas National Historic Landmark Cemetery

May 30, 2020 @ 4:00 am - 6:00 am

Join Cemetery Program Manager Amy Barry from the Utah Division of State History for a walking tour of the history of Utah’s longest-serving military post’s cemetery. Learn about who was buried there and how efforts to preserve these fragile tombstones continue.  At the end of the tour participants are welcome to explore the Fort Douglas Military Museum to get an even more in-depth exploration of this site’s rich history.  Participants must be able to walk on both sidewalks and uneven terrain for, and must be over 18 years of age unless accompanied by a responsible adult.
Early May can provide a wide range of weather, so be prepared for wind, rain, heat, and even snow. Good hiking shoes, a hat, and lots of water are a must. You can bring a lunch if you want and stay out on the grounds to enjoy the hopefully beautiful day.
Only 20 spots are available, and they’ll go fast! Reserve yours at EventBrite today.
