In 1875, the funeral was a pageant of honored traditions! Families gathered to find joy in a public celebration of a life well lived. At 1:00, 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. Walk in the funeral procession led by a horse-drawn hearse to New Hope Cemetery for a moving memorial service.
