The tour will guide tourists through West Hill Cemetery, stopping at the graves and historical markers of various prominent local people. This year’s tour will include Edward Younger Goode, Lydia Starr McPherson, Mrs. Oliver A. Carr “Mattie,” Andrew Hanson, Bruno H. Zauk, and the Great Sherman Storm of 1896.

Bonner, Assistant Director of The Sherman Museum.
