A Tour to Die For

Posted by OCVA / October 30, 2016

Witness history come to life this October in Lincoln City. Introducing A Tour to Die For, guided tours of Lincoln City's hilltop graveyard, Pioneer Cemetery, on October 21-22 & 28-30. Get a rare nighttime tour of the cemetery and hear an eternity of tales from the permanent residents.

Tours depart from the Lincoln City Cultural Center, 540 NE Hwy 101, at 5:30, 6:00, 6:30 and 7:00pm on both weekends. Hot beverages and snacks will be on hand to fortify partakers of this fateful journey. On the way to the cemetery, participants will enjoy listening to local legends, lore and mysterious occurrences from their tour guide. Arriving at Pioneer Cemetery, brave souls will be greeted by Mr. Bones, who donated the land for the graveyard. From there, each tour will be guided by lantern light to the final resting place of six of the cemetery residents, each of whom will tell their stories. Some of the residents include a sea captain who didn't make it to port, a woman who ran a Post Office back when women didn't do such things and a town character who may try to sell "roses" from his wheelbarrow.
