Voices from the Past Cemetery Walk: Scoundrels, Scandals and Skulduggery II.

October 9 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 pm, repeating until October 10, 2021

The Voices from the Past Cemetery Walk will feature Scandals, Scoundrels and Skulduggery II this year! Take a self-guided walk through Winona’s historic and beautiful Woodlawn Cemetery to hear community actors portraying people from our past.
This year we hear from those that lived hard lives, made some poor choices and those who protected the community from the seeder side of Winona. In 2012 this theme was a huge hit and we are excited to bring more stories of scandals, scoundrels and skulduggery. A few of those we will hear from are: some ladies of Winona’s red light district, Queenie LaVaque, Lano Dupont; “Big Moose” – Anton Pellowski; Dorothy Haner, Winona’s first female investigator and Victor Gage (1908 – 1985) who was also known as “Wyoming” – to name a few. Explore Winona’s beautiful arboretum cemetery, Woodlawn, ablaze in autumn colors, as you hear actors at 8 sites.
There is an accessible Indoor Performance on Wednesday, October 6, at 6:00 p.m. at History Center. Register by calling 507.454.2723 ext. 0
