The Roselawn Cemetery Storyboard Project

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2020

Our book THE HEARTS & SOULS OF ROSELAWN  created an interest in the diversified history that the cemetery grounds tell. Many of the readers requested walking tours. Their requests prompted the idea to create storyboards with photos that would allow visitors to tour the grounds and enjoy the stories and the history at their own pace.
