Oak Grove Cemetery Guided Walk
Saturday May 18, 2019  11am - 12pm (1 Hour )
Family Friendly Outdoor Community


The Kentville Historical Society and the Kentville Community Fund have jointly organized a free guided walk in Oak Grove Cemetery.

The Oak Grove cemetery dates back to 1774 and is full of fascinating people who helped shape Kentville today. Join a guided tour with Laura Churchill Duke, who researched and wrote the scripts for the Kentville ghost walks, and learn about the most famous privateer in the War of 1812, the young man who saved his boss' children from drowning, and the doctor who performed the first cataract surgery in Kentville. They are all buried in the Oak Grove Cemetery.

The walk will start at the Oak Grove Cemetery entrance, across from Burgher Hill. There is parking along Southview Avenue or Burgher Hill Drive.

After the walk, the Kentville Historical Society will host an Opening Day event at 2pm at the Via Rail Station.

The walk is part of Jane’s Walk – a global movement of citizen-led walks in memory of urbanist and activist Jane Jacobs, who believed we should be committed to understanding the streets and paths that make up our neighborhoods.

Please wear sturdy shoes, as the ground is uneven.
