“Grave Tales: A Walking Tour of Live Oak Cemeteries” will be held Oct. 31.
Tales of life and death, love and tragedy, legacy and loss are explored during this walking tour of historic Live Oak and Live Oak African American cemeteries. The tour will visit the final resting places of notable members of the Walterboro community from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, highlight the graves of several tragic deaths and remember the lives lost in the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918-1919. The tour is led by Walterboro historian Elizabeth Laney.
Tour 1 starts at 2 p.m. Participants will walk on unpaved surfaces, so closed-toed shoes are recommended. Tours are free but limited to 15 persons. Please call 843.549.2303 to reserve a spot.
Participants will meet at the Big Red Rocking Chair at the Detreville entrance to the Walterboro Wildlife Sanctuary. Masks recommended but not required. Maintain social distance as much as possible.
