The Batavia Cemetery Association, in conjunction with the Genesee County History Department, will host a guided ghost walk through the Historic Batavia Cemetery on Harvester Avenue from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 2.
The tours will feature some of the finest ladies who ever graced the community.
Guests will meet the late, great women of Batavia who, for various reasons, held great power and exerted great influence in their day. Mary Richmond and Rachel Ellicott Evans, among others, will tell the stories of their interesting lives and very powerful families. Lucinda Morgan may finally tell what happened to her husband, William Morgan, after he threatened to reveal Masonic secrets. And there may be a guest appearance by a ghost who knows many secrets of the powerful men of Batavia.
Tours begin at 2 p.m. and run every 15 minutes until 4 p.m. Admission is $10 and includes iced tea and cookies. Tickets are available at the cemetery gate the day of the event.
Proceeds benefit the upkeep and restoration of the cemetery. For more information, contact the Genesee County History Department at 344-2550, ext. 2613.
