Athens-Limestone County Tourism presents the Athens Cemetery Stroll Sunday, October 3rd, 2:PM till 4:PM in the Athens City Cemetery

ATHENS-Quietly at rest, atop the hill of Athens City Cemetery lays the grit and fortitude of the forefathers which built Athens-Limestone County.

On October 3rd, you will step into the former world of those who shaped our towns and county. Teresa Todd, Director for Athens-Limestone County Tourism said, “These spirits will come alive with tales of history, heritage, family, and community. Local residents become actors in period attire; many of them will be descendants of the very people they are portraying.”

The day of storytelling from yesteryear begins at 2:00 p.m. with tales woven from passed-down family history and speckled with tales of a burgeoning community; their successes, their struggles, and even the war. Each actor has diligently researched their “spirit” and their life in the days of old. This free public event will run until 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 3rd.

Todd continued to say, “We honor our past by sharing our stories and history. There is no better way to learn your history than in our Athens Cemetery Stroll and hearing it from our experienced & passionate storytellers.”

The event is presented by the Athens-Limestone County Tourism and Sons of the Confederate Veterans as a quality of life event.

WE ARE ACCEPTING ACTORS FOR THIS YEAR’S STROLL. IF INTERESTED CONTACT THE ATHENS LIMESTONE TOURISM OFFICE 256-232-5411 FOR INFORMATION.
