“Our guide was fabulous. He shared history of the cemetery and those buried there as well as general information about what life was like for those wacky Victorians. They were such an interesting bunch. I’ve attended many cemetery tours in different cities and Josh has been was of the most informed. It was a great crowd and made it completely worth driving there from Richmond!” — Sharon

We highly recommend!” — Susan
