Funeral Begins at 1 pm
In 1875, the funeral was a pageant of honored traditions! Families gathered to find joy in a public celebration of a life well lived. At 1:00pm, join with historic interpreters as they celebrate the life and honor the death of a fictional Walnut Hill resident with a re-created funeral. Visit the Tangen House, prepared with a period style coffin and funeral drapery. Walk in the funeral procession led by a horse-drawn hearse to New Hope Cemetery for a moving memorial service. All activities are included in regular admission to Living History Farms.
