Join Historic Geneva archivist Becky Chapin for a tour centered around section 20 of Glenwood Cemetery. She will focus on burials of members of the Syrian community who settled in Geneva around the turn of the 20th century. From the familiar names of Baroody, Abraham, Hessney, and many others, we’ll discuss the impact of international incidents on the local community, while learning about the Syrian families who came to call Geneva home.
The tour takes place rain or shine. Glenwood is located at 1000 Lochland Road. Participants should come in at the south entrance on Lochland Road. Section 20 is at the first right on the cemetery road. Advance tickets are recommended but not required. Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased in advance through 5 p.m. October 8. Payment can also be made at the tour with exact change or a check. For more information or to purchase advance tickets call 315-789-5151.
