Lake of the Woods Cemetery Tour

July 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$10

Presenter: Braden Murray

Join The Muse’s Braden Murray as we take an evening walk in Kenora’s silent city, the Lake of the Woods Cemetery.

With over 14,000 burials it is the largest cemetery in northern Ontario, and one of the largest cemeteries in Canada. The tour looks at Kenora’s history through the lens of the people buried here.  From true crime tales and murder mysteries, to the Ontario-Manitoba border war, sickness and disease, and one of the most famous (and grisliest) bank robberies in Canadian history— These true stories of real people combine to give a history of Kenora like you’ve never heard before.

Space is limited so pre-registration is required. For more info or to purchase tickets visit Eventbrite by clicking here OR call the Museum at 807-467-2105.

Cost is $10/person* (there is a surcharge of $1.62/person for all payments through Eventbrite). Hearing assistive devices are available. We ask that guests please bring their own wired headphones.

You are welcome to bring your own portable lawn chair if you wish.

Please meet at the east end of the Lake of the Woods Cemetery by the Cemetery garage. There is parking available there. Follow the signs from the entrance gate.
