Celebrating the life and history at Elmwood – St. Joseph Cemetery during our annual history walk. This year’s theme during the afternoon stroll is “Gaining Momentum: Building Our Future”, features wipers, educators, wheelers, progressive reformers, and veterans, all who made a significant impact in creating a vibrant community in Mason City. The afternoon stroll is about one mile in length throughout the cemetery grounds. After a chili dinner, enjoy the evening portion of the history, themed “The Prohibition Years: Roaring Into The Future”, highlighting local history during the prohibition era. Enjoy “old-timey” root beer in a take-home history walk mug, live music from the local band, The Hats, and live actors and actresses on stage to share a unique, dynamic perspective into the 1920s. The Elmwood – St. Joseph Cemetery History Walk is a ticketed event and open to the public. Tickets are available starting September 1st at both Hy-Vee grocery stores, as well as the cemetery office.
