A Dusk Walking Tour of Bear Canon Cemetery

On September 27, 2014, Genealogists Jerry and Mary Persall conducted A Dusk Walking Tour of Bear Canon Cemetery. This walking tour was directed with costumed interpreters from Castle Rock Historical Society and other re-enactors. The walking tour was sponsored by the Castle Rock Historical Society with assistance of the Bear Canon Cemetery Association and the St. Philip-in-the-field Episcopal Church.

The Bear Canon Cemetery was founded in 1873 and contains the remains of pioneers significant in early history of Sedalia, Castle Rock and Douglas County. The Church was open for self-guided tours for those wishing to tour it.

This souvenir booklet was prepared by Jerry Persall.
