Grant County To Host Cemetery Tour

A cemetery tour of the Historic Estates of Serenity Cemetery in Marion (formerly the I.O.O.F. Cemetery) will be given on Tuesday, August 19 at 6 pm. Karen Niverson, director of the Grant County Convention & Visitors Bureau, along with Sue Bratton from the Marion Public Library, will talk about some of the "industrial giants, heroes and rascals" buried there. Participants should meet at the cemetery (1101 S. Lincoln Blvd., Marion IN).

This tour is free and open to the public. It is part of a Cemetery Education & Restoration Series, which was made possible by a Historic Preservation Education Grant from Indiana Landmarks, Indiana Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
