Cemetery Lantern Tour, 2023
September 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm EDT
Once a year this event shares more of Rugby’s true stories about real people of the past than any other. Hear in their own words from letters, diaries & other accounts what brought 10 settlers to Rugby and what their ultimate fate was. Some met tragic ends. Others had long, interesting lives. All are buried in Rugby’s Laurel Dale Cemetery, site of the event. Because it’s sacred ground, we limit participants to 40 — and it always sells out. Ticket information will be available on this site later in the year. Mark your calendar now. Proceeds benefit nonprofit Historic Rugby.
