August 5 @ 6:45 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

This is an in-person event, maximum 25 participants. Email to register. Meet at the gates at 1030 Greenwood Drive.

In this Year of the Garden, join Alan Harrington of the Burlington Historical Society for a walk through Greenwood Cemetery, founded in 1888, and visit the gardens and gardeners who are buried there. The most famous one is Spencer Smith who is buried along with both of his wives. To him we owe credit for the beautiful park on our lakefront which is home to festivals and family enjoyment.
