HARRODSBURG — Just before sun sets Friday and Saturday, history will be underfoot — literally — in the Spring Hill Cemetery. On those two evenings, six — or more — of Harrodsburg's famous or infamous figures will help guests touring the cemetery to relive a little history.
The historic characters will be James Harrod Trust members and friends acting as costumed interpreters bringing to life the color and history of some of this community's forefathers. The cemetery tour, hosted by James Harrod Trust and sponsored by The Harrodsburg Herald, offers visitors a unique and fun way to learn about the history of the state's oldest settlement and the people who lived, fought and died in the community.
This will be the sixth annual James Harrod Trust "History Underfoot" Cemetery Tour designed to relive a little history. The tours will be guided by James Harrod Trust members and will feature visits to at least six grave sites. At each grave, costumed interpreters will be in character leading a discussion about the lives of their subjects.
