Sherman, Texas -- "History Comes Alive," the annual historic tour through West Hill Cemetery History Comes Alive has been postponed until next Saturday, October 20 because of the forecast for stormy weather. The tour through the cemetery allows people to learn about influential figures from Sherman and the Grayson County area.

The tour will guide tourists through West Hill Cemetery, stopping at the graves and historical markers of various prominent local people. This year’s tour will include Edward Younger Goode, Lydia Starr McPherson, Mrs. Oliver A. Carr “Mattie,” Andrew Hanson, Bruno H. Zauk, and the Great Sherman Storm of 1896. Each stop will allow tourists to hear the stories and history of these individuals through character actors playing each historical figure. “History Comes Alive is a wonderful, and fun, way for people to ‘interact’ and learn from the past,” states Natalie R. Bonner, Assistant Director of The Sherman Museum.

“History Comes Alive” is scheduled for Saturday, October 13, 2018. Tickets are available starting September 26, but they are limited so please order quickly. Ticket times are available from 9:00am to 2:00pm every half hour with the 12pm time being handicap accessible.
