        Old Vancouver City Cemetery Tour

        Old Vancouver Cemetery Tour

        See You in the Past.

        Nothing says Halloween like a nice walk...through a cemetery...after dark! The Vancouver Heritage Ambassadors are having their 10th Annual Old Cemetery Tour, Friday and Saturday, October 26-27, 2012. Walks start approximately every 15 minutes from 5:30 pm to 7:15 pm, and last about 45 minutes. 

        A guide and lanterns will illuminate the way through this mildly spooky historical presentation. Meet some of the historic people from Clark County's past, who are current residents of Vancouver's Old City Cemetery, and hear their stories. Just a reminder, no ghosts or undead will actually be making an appearance; it's just good historic fun...right?

        Meet at the southeast corner gate of the Old City Cemetery (Mill Plain and Grand Blvd) and be sure to dress for the weather and walking. Tickets are $5 per person plus a canned food donation for the Clark County Food Bank, children under 10 are free with an adult. The International Air and Hospitality Academy is offering complimentary parking.

        For more information, call 360-695-5602 or visit Vancouver Heritage Ambassadors on Facebook (and while you're on Facebook, be sure to visit Clark County Live!, too).

          Planning to attend the 2016 walk on October 22. would like to do some research on historic occupants before hand. Where would you suggest starting? My interests are actually in the Fur Trade era and the Hawaiian history but think this is too early for the actual inception of the Cemetery. It is my understanding the Ester Stark is interred here. Thank you for any input you deem important.

          excuse my error…Ester Clark Short is the subject of my search. I plan to visit her grave on the 22nd. thank you.
