Union Grove Memorial Cemetery Walk, sponsored by the History Seekers of the Union Grove Area, will take place Saturday, Sept. 24 from 1 -4 p.m.

Participants will have a unique experience on this tour of the historic Union Grove Memorial Cemetery. You can speak with early settlers and listen to them tell of life in this western Racine County community. Hear them tell tales of hardships and celebrations of victory. Learn how these first leaders, merchants, healers and heroes built a town we now know as Union Grove.
There will be a family whose members served in the Revolutionary, Black Hawk and Civil Wars. Talk to the first doctor who made house calls on horseback, a WWI bugler and general store merchant.

This event is free and open to the public
