The Marquette Regional History Center presents: Holy Cross Cemetery Walk
The Marquette Regional History Center will be hosting its 11th Annual cemetery walk on Tuesday July 19 at 6:30 pm at the cemetery on Wright Street with parking near the Chapel. In case of rain, the event will be held on July 21st. Museum guides will take you on a walk through the cemetery to hear about the life of Bishop Pinten, the Donckers and Hurley families, a policeman killed in the line of duty, a “Hotel King”, a bootlegger and several soldiers. Discover the mystery of the “uprooted” tombstones from the Old Catholic Cemetery. At the conclusion, refreshments will be provided by Holy Cross Cemetery. For questions call the MRHC at 226-3571 or visit marquettehistory.org. There is a $5.00 suggested donation.
