Mulberry Grove Cemetery history walking tour announced


Meet at Mulberry Grove Cemetery for the upcoming gathering of Bond County Historical Society and Bond County Genealogical Society on Thursday, July 20, at 7 pm. Hosts will relate the cemetery’s history and its ongoing operations. Additionally, guides will narrate stories about some of Bond County’s esteemed residents laid to rest there.

Society members and the public are invited to attend the evening’s history walk activities. Tour the rolling lawns, networks of gravel paths and stands of trees, and explore both the old sections and new sections of the cemetery where all ages, styles, and conditions of tombstones mingle. Plus take the opportunity to visit the stones of family and/or friends. For more information see the July 11, 2023 edition of The Greenville advocate.
