The Cemetery Advisory Board (CAB) is seeking local history buffs and storytellers who can help local history come alive during the Historic Wake Forest Cemetery Walking Tour.
The CAB sponsors the annual walking tour to highlight the cemetery’s historical significance and the fascinating stories of the people buried there. The tour also celebrates the lives of the men and women who established the Wake Forest community, as well as its culture and destiny.
This year’s Historic Wake Forest Cemetery Walking Tour will be Saturday, May 12, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Volunteer docents are needed on the day of the event to stand or sit at various locations throughout the cemetery and recount the lives, accomplishments and contributions of our historic and notable cemetery residents.
The CAB also wants to hear from area residents who have personal stories to share about the history of Wake Forest but are not interested in serving as a docent or participating personally in the tour.
Anyone who has a story to tell or insight to share about bygone eras is urged to complete the Individual History Form at www.wakeforestnc.gov/individual-history-form.aspx.
