Fremont Maple Grove Cemetery Walk
Every year we hold a cemetery walk through the Maple Grove Cemetery here in the city of Fremont. It is a lot of work but it always is a success. We have a lumber camp cook, legend and lore of death and dying, the forgotten woman, secret societies, early doctors in Fremont, a one room school teacher and a civil war vet. among many other characters. One of the big hits every year is the old hearse from one of our area funeral homes who also provides a person talking about the role of the funeral home over the years and history of embalming. We are already planning our 2010 walk.
