Enjoy a walking tour through Ithaca's earliest burial ground and learn how it evolved into a 19th c. "garden of the dead." This 16-acre cemetery is the largest public greenspace in the city, located in the heart of the Fall Creek neighborhood and on the edge of the Cornell University campus. Early business owners and elected officials, seekers of freedom from slavery, firemen and veterans, and many more are highlighted on this tour. Expect to walk up/down hills along sometimes uneven terrain. Suitable for families.
