ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Take a guided walk among the tombstones and meet some of Johnson County’s former residents during Johnson County Historical Society’s Beyond the Grave: 2017 Cemetery Walk on Sunday October 15, 2017 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m., at Old St. Joseph Cemetery located in Iowa City, Iowa. Emerging from the night in period costume, actors will tell the tales of individuals buried at Old St. Joseph Cemetery. Where did they come from? How did they get here? Visitors will put to rest their questions about important Iowa City citizens and enjoy refreshments at Happy Hollow Park.

This annual event is organized by the Johnson County Historical Society. The Johnson County Historical Society is a private, non-profit group committed to serving the public by furthering an appreciation of the historical and cultural heritage of the Johnson County community through education, preservation and interpretation.
