“Legacies of Savanna,” an indoor seated cemetery tour, will be given on Saturday, October 22nd at the Savanna Museum and Cultural Center, 406 Main Street at 2:00 pm.
First person presenters will portray eight of Savanna’s former citizens.
The honored citizens for the tour will include: Aaron Pierce, founder of Savanna, Captain Stoughton Cooley, steamboat captain, Bothwell Pulford, pharmacist, Simon Greenleaf, editor, Hazel Law, storeowner, Esther Reagan, educator, Mel Jones, businessman, and Robert Kelly, former POW.
Jean Ferris, creator of the event, said, “ I want to honor past citizens from different eras and walks of life. Their stories are important to our history and help us define who and what we are today. The figures will be portrayed with dignity and respect. We will learn about their lives and what legacies they have left us. The event is suitable for all ages.”
Held in the Community Room of the museum, a donation of $8.00 is appreciated.
