Historian Offering Halloween Cemetery Tour

Halloween is just around the corner, and what would be a more fitting way to celebrate than touring a cemetery?

Historian Jan Petersen will be conducting the seventh annual Elko City Cemetery Tour on Halloween at 1 pm. The tour won’t be for spooks and frights, though. Petersen will be taking folks on an informative tour to enlighten them about many former residents that helped make Elko what it is today. They may reside in the cemetery now, but their contributions to the community live every day.

Those interested should meet Petersen at the Russell Mausoleum in the Masonic cemetery across from the former Elko HS gym. The tour will commence there, and all are invited to join in this stroll through time.
