Open 9am-4pm, Funeral procession begins at 1 pm

In 1876, the funeral was a pageant of honored traditions! Families gathered to find joy in a public celebration of a life well lived. Join with historic interpreters as they celebrate the life and honor the death of a fictional Walnut Hill resident with a re-created funeral. Visit the Tangen home, prepared with a period style coffin and funeral drapery. At 1pm, walk in the funeral procession led by a horse-drawn hearse to New Hope Cemetery for a moving memorial service.

Event activities are included with regular admission to Living History Farms.
