Event Description

Meet at the Grout Museum 15 minutes prior to show time, ride a bus to Fairview Cemetery and spend the evening strolling down the paths of Cedar Valley’s past, as actors bring residents back to life through live historical interpretation.

This unique, living history experience is designed for the entire family. This is a walking tour so please wear comfortable attire, and dress for the weather. The presentation will take place rain or shine. The program will last approximately 90 minutes, which includes transportation to and from the Grout Museum of History & Science.

This year’s cast of characters includes: Fred Becker, Forest Kirkhart, Carl Kirkpatrick, James Groat, Isabel McIsaac, and William Virden.

In between shows enjoy a warm bowl of chili. Friends of the Grout Historic Houses will be sponsoring a Chili Supper to raise funds for the Snowden House. From 5 – 7 pm chili, cornbread, dessert and a beverage will be served for $8 at the Grout Museum, 503 South St, Waterloo.
