Step back in time and learn about Victor’s 1890’s cemetery, its resident politicians, and the history that brought them to the gold mining camp.
Local historian Veldean Myers and Alicia Petri will provide insights into the cemetery, its history and some of those who served in public offices.
Be sure to dress appropriately for mountain weather which can include wind, cold temperatures, snow, and rain. Wear good hiking shoes or boots and bring water and sunscreen. There are no restroom facilities at the cemetery.
The tours will be held two Saturdays of each month from June 24 through Labor Day as weather permits. Tours will meet just outside the gate in Pauper’s Field.
These walking tours are sponsored by the Victor Lowell Thomas Museu. Proceeds benefit the museum’s building and restoration fund.
$10 per person.
Cash at the gate or credit card at the museum.
