Murder, Mayhem and Misadventure Walking Tour at Oakwood Cemetery
Please join us for the 10th annual Murder, Mayhem & Misadventure Walking Tour Oct 29th, 2016 (10am-4pm) at Historic Oakwood Cemetery 1601 Navasota St. Austin TX 78702. The free tours cover the chilling, untimely deaths of 13 “residents” of Oakwood portrayed by actors at their grave sites.
The 45 minute tours highlight historical – not scary – events from 1842 through 1918 and showcase a wealth of information from the Austin History Center and local Austin sites. Tours start every 15-20 minutes between 10 am-3:15pm at the blue “sign-in” tents. Kids under adult supervision are welcome, but please leave your pets at home and wear closed-toed shoes.
In celebration of the 10th Tour, the price of the book “Austin’s Historic Oakwood Cemetery” will be sold for only $10, a 33% discount off the $15 list price.
The tours are sponsored by Save Austin’s Cemeteries, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving Austin’s historic cemeteries in partnership with the City of Austin. Donations for the tour are welcome.
