Charleston Area Chamber of Commerce - Event Information





Event Name:Arts in the Cemetery
Event Type(s):Community Event
Description:
Kevin and Paul Baumann, brothers,  are very knowledgeable about local cemeteries and have visited cemeteries in their travels internationally. They will start the day with a PowerPoint presentation on Tombstone Art. In the afternoon, Roselawn-Mound Cemetery and Old City Cemetery will be toured, with Paul and Kevin as guides. One just might hear bagpipes in the background and see re-enactments of moments in the life of pioneers who lived long ago. In case of rain, we will meet back in the library (after lunch on your own) for afternoon stories of art in the lives of those who lived here in Coles County long ago.
