Opening Reception June 20, 2008

Start: 1:00 pm
End: 5:00 pm
This year’s Brooklyn Centre Riverside Cemetery Tour returns for another afternoon of history and entertainment. Two popular characters from last year’s tour--Avery Hopwood and William Astrup--will appear for a return engagement. Martin Ruetenik, John M. Ackley, Anna Coffinberry, Claud Foster, and James Curtiss will join the cast of characters.

Come join us for an afternoon filled with the history of our neighborhood and our city.
Find out--

  • who was known as “the King of Celery”
  • which one was the model for the Moses Cleaveland statue that stands in public square
  • what does that dove on Aunt Sophie’s grave really mean
  • how one of them through tragedy made our lives safer today
  • how an inventor born in Brooklyn Centre gave us our YMCA and Deaconess Hospital
  • and where will the vintage car be located?

The Old Brooklyn Historical Society will share an array of vintage photos. They could use your help with identification of people, places, and things. Friends of Big Creek will show the progression of our neighborhood through the years with a map display. The Metroparks Zoo will be on hand selling ZooDoo for all of you gardeners. A local genealogist will answer questions on how to get started with your “pedigree tree”

Continuous walking tours will be conducted throughout the afternoon until 4:15 p.m. Refreshments and musical entertainment will be a part of the experience. The book “Reflections from Brooklyn Centre” will be on sale.
