A cemetery isn’t just a place of mourning. A cemetery can also be a place of learning, which was the case June 28 and 29, when Union Cemetery of Hellertown hosted its annual Cemetery Tours.
The free tours featured costumed, volunteer re-enactors portraying well-known former Hellertonians whose final resting place is within the well-manicured graveyard.
This year’s tours featured the graves of Esther Schrantz, William Szabo, Pliny Bergstresser and Arthur & Louisa Schrantz.
Participants were led from one grave to the next by Boy Scout volunteers.
