September 22, 2013: 26th Annual Cemetery Walk at Bluff City Cemetery

This year we celebrated our 26th annual Cemetery Walk at Bluff City Cemetery. This event was started in 1988 by Jerry Turnquist. We portray Elgin citizens from all walks of life. From the richest of the rich to everyday folks, their stories have educated and entertained us. Visitors are guided to gravesites of former Elgin residents, where actors in period costume portray them and share with you stories of their lives and times.
