Please note: Thursday's (Sept. 13) Moonlight Cemetery and Secrets from the Grave Tour has been cancelled due to the threat of inclement weather. We are working with Elmwood Cemetery to reschedule as soon as possible.
One hundred and sixty years of history will come to life during our popular Cemetery Tours! Grab your flashlight as we tour one of Columbia's oldest cemeteries and discover centuries of stories etched in stone on the markers and headstones found within Elmwood Cemetery's acres of carefully planned grounds. The perfect after-work activity, our cemetery tours are an event the whole family will enjoy.
Choose from two tour options every month through October:
- Secrets from the Grave Tours, 7:30 pm: Join us before dark to study the symbols found on many of the markers and headstones in this historic cemetery.
- Moonlight Cemetery Tours, 8 & 8:30 pm: Tour Elmwood Cemetery and discuss the lives, burials, cemetery plots and tombstones of families and prominent citizens from Columbia's 19th and 20th centuries.
