Book a Tour
(6/10/18) Are you looking for something different for your group or club to do this summer? Do you want to do something that's not only fun and interesting but also active?
Cemetery tours are perfect for all ages, and they can be customized to fit your needs. The most popular tours are on gravestone symbolism or local history.
'Why would you study cemeteries?'
(6/10/18) Often asked with a grimace on their faces, this is a common question I and many other taphophiles are asked.
"Why would you spend time in them? They're so depressing!" I should carry a photo of this gravestone--along with those of other amazing works of cemetery art--with me so I can say, "This is why. Look what your missing out on!"
Cemeteries don't have to be depressing or scary. Visiting them when you don't know anyone there is not in poor taste, and it's not creepy. It shows you have an appreciation for those who have come before. Cemeteries represent our history, communities, and cultures.
Currently researching: Colleen Moore
(11/12/17) There are so many silent film actresses I want to include in my future book. The research has been expansive and hard to narrow down. All of these women have interesting stories to tell! In order to reign the research (and myself) in, I've decided to focus on one at a time. I know you're probably thinking that should be a given, but I keep getting pulled in when I happen upon a new silent screen star.
Quick note about Colleen Moore: She loved miniatures. You can see proof of this at Chicago's Science and Industry Museum. She created the amazing Fairy Castle on display since she brought it to the museum in 1949.
