Enjoy an approximately 90-minute historical walking tour of Globe’s oldest cemetery, depicting an old west time period gone by.
Tour shuttles will depart from the 1916 railroad depot in historic downtown Globe and arrive at the 1876 founded cemetery. The guided cemetery path will be filled with theatre and musical performers in period style, depicting former residents and the tales of the lives they once led.
Shuttles will escort participants back to your starting point at the train depot.
The Cemetery Tour is not a ghost and ghoul tour, this is a history tour of the land and time of Globe’s past. The Globe Downtown Association requests respect for the cemetery and its occupants. Wear comfortable shoes, prepare for paved-incline walking and although backlit, bring a flashlight to navigate the paths. The tour path was originally designed for horse and buggy but is ADA compliant. There will be handicapped-only parking available at the cemetery.presented by the Globe Downtown Association in conjunction with the Copper Cities Community Players from the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts and the Globe-Miami Chamber of Commerce.
During the day, enjoy the partner event of the Historic Home and Building Tour, held both on Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7. Or by night, feel free to wander down Broad Street to attend the first annual Saturday 7 p.m.-midnight “Dapper Social” event, at Broad and Mesquite streets.
