Few places in Des Moines hold as much history as the grounds of Woodland Cemetery. Join local historian and educator Archie Cook on a tour through the grassy knolls and stately trees of one of our city’s oldest treasures. Tours (rain or shine) are recommended for those ages 10 and up, last approximately 2.5 hours and are free. A donation is suggested and will go towards the Woodland Monument Restoration Project.
Children and strollers are permitted but some sections of the tour will not be easily accessible for strollers due to rough terrain.
