Look for this beloved event to return  in a most unique and virtual way 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 in the fall of 2019 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 virtually in the fall of 2021. Watch for more information.
