Virtual Cemetery Tour in Washington begins on Oct. 30

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Gunn Historical Society has decided not to host an in-person cemetery tour this year. Instead, the Gunn Historical Museum’s 13th Annual Washington Cemetery Tour will be pre-recorded and posted on the Museum’s website www.gunnmuseum.org and social media channels at 6:30 pm on Friday, October 30 and will remain there for future viewing.

The Washington Cemetery Tour is an annual “living history” event that showcases the rich history of Washington using costumed actors to portray residents from the past. In this year’s tour, we will be sharing stories from 100 years ago, including those of Washington, Connecticut suffragists, bootleggers, and those who faced the flu pandemic of 1918. The tour is produced by the Gunn Historical Museum with support from local theater luminaries Doug and Martha Winkel of the Washington Dramalites. Videographers, Philip Dutton and Ulrich Vilbois are the creators of the film.
