SAC is happy to announce that our free family-friendly walking tour will be held on October 28th, the Saturday before Halloween. Tours start at 10:00 a.m. and leave on the half-hour, with the last tour strolling out at 2:30. Each tour lasts about 45 minutes.
Some of Oakwood’s “residents” are eager to tell their stories include the mother who had to bury two of her children, a man who was shot for not getting a job, suicides, murders, and love triangles.
Remember to come prepared. Please wear comfortable shoes as some of the terrain can be uneven. All children must be accompanied by an adult and no pets are allowed in city cemeteries. For those with mobility issues, a chauffeured golf cart will be provided twice during the day. The morning golf cart tour leaves at 11:00 a.m. and the afternoon tour rolls out at 1:00 p.m.
It’s our most popular event and we are looking forward to having you join us. It’s a great way to learn a little of Austin’s history! Free but donations are welcome and appreciated.
