The Glenwood Cemetery and ACO Prince Edward County invite you to experience one of the County’s most treasured heritage sites through a tour of this historic cemetery on Saturday, May 14 starting at 2 pm.
Glenwood Cemetery opened in 1873. This Victorian cemetery is the final resting place of temperance advocate Letitia Youmans (1827-1896), Wellington Boulter (1838-1927), the father of the canning industry in Canada, and George Louder (1860-1884), a young man unjustly hanged for a botched robbery and murder in Bloomfield at Christmas 1883.
Join local historian Peter Lockyer for a one-hour walk of the property, and naturalist Terry Sprague for a virtual tour of Glenwood in the restored chapel at 47 Ferguson St. in Picton.
Tour proceeds support the ongoing efforts by the Glenwood Board of Directors to preserve the cemetery, and the work of the newly formed, local branch of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario to protect the County’s many other significant heritage properties and cultural landscapes.
Tickets are $20 per person.
