By Staff | Aug 5, 2011

The Elmwood Cemetery Board of Directors is pleased to announce the annual “Testimony of the Rocks” Tour. This year the board is offering two tours. The first tour is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 20 at 6:30 p.m. The second tour is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 27 at 10:30 a.m. The same information will be offered at each tour.

As in years past both tours will be led by Shepherdstown Historian Laureate Dr. Jim Price. He will be assisted by local historian Doug Perks. This year Price is featuring stories about members of the Lee, Dandridge, Goldsborough, Sheetz and Potts families. Together Price and Perks will give talks about men and women about whom they have written and spoken.

The cost of the tour is $10 per person. All proceeds will go toward the restoration of tombstones in Elmwood Cemetery. The tour will take place in one location this year, so feel free to bring along a chair to sit in while you listen. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes.
