The Wayne County Museum was established in 1988. Our mission is to discover, preserve, document, display, and disseminate historical knowledge and artifacts of Wayne County. We also seek to increase public awareness of the heritage of Wayne County and its environs through exhibits, events, and traditional and digital information sources.
The Wayne County Museum presents "The Ghosts of Christmas Past." Join us on December 9th for a journey through the beautiful and historic Willowdale Cemetery, where you will meet "residents" of Willowdale played by costumed actors from local history, telling their stories at their gravesides. The tour will be followed by a Holiday Reception at the Wayne County Museum.
There will be tours from 4-6 PM and 7-9 PM. Each tour will last approximately 45 minutes. Parking will be on the Museum's lots and a trolley will take you to and from Willowdale, located 4.5 blocks from the Museum.
This is a walking tour. The evening tours will take place in the dark with only dim lighting available from lanterns and candles. We encourage attendees to take this into consideration before reserving a ticket time. Attendees are responsible for their own actions during the tour and by purchasing a ticket acknowledge the risk associated with participating in an evening walking tour. All proceeds benefit the Wayne County Museum.
