Stroll through Painesville’s Evergreen Cemetery and meet residents from the past who are a little more alive than they should be.

Take a guided walk through Painesville’s Evergreen Cemetery.  As we stroll among the tombstones, meet residents the who come back for one day to tell their stories.

From a woman who chose to give her life so co-workers could live, to the man whose pride is etched for eternity, the tales are many and not to be missed.
