Talking Spirits: Forest Hill Cemetery Tour


Held each fall at the beautiful Forest Hill Cemetery in Madison, this award-winning living history programs illuminates the lives of many prominent and lesser known-figures in Wisconsin history. Focusing on the contributions of Wisconsin’s soldiers and citizens during the Civil War, local actors and actresses don period dress, giving viewers a first person encounter through scripted vignettes.  Tour guides lead informative discussions of the cemetery’s rich history during the 90 minute tour.
