CEMETERY TALES has been canceled for the 2020 season. Look for this beloved event to return  in 2021.

Annual Fall Event

The 10th Anniversary Performance
was an outstanding success!

The hearts and souls of this year’s selected Idlewilde residents came alive this past fall as local actors, dressed in period costumes, told the life stories of those former citizens. The event typically begins at Down Manor, 1950 Sterling Place, in Hood River, where guests are taken in a passenger van to the cemetery nearby.

In keeping with the History Museum's mission of preserving and telling the stories of former Hood River County citizens, Cemetery Tales will return again next fall in Hood River’s Idlewilde Cemetery.
