These tours, which have become a favorite among history and architecture buffs across the metropolitan area, take place on the first Saturday of the month from May to October. They are led by a variety of volunteers, including residents and local historians, and feature a different tour each month.
The first tour of the season, on May 1, will be of the Mount Memorial Cemetery, led by Juarenne Hester of Historic Liberty, Inc. All tours are free and open to the public. Tours are on foot; so, participants are reminded to wear comfortable walking shoes. All tours will begin at 10 a.m. and generally last an hour.
For more information about the tours, call the City’s Preservation Office at 439-4537.
This tour will meet at the entrance to the cemetery. (Follow Miller Street entrance to the William Jewell College campus and continue up the hill.)
