You Can Tour A Cemetery This Not-So Devil’s Night In Holland
How do you plan on celebrating Devil's Night this year? Obviously I hope it isn't spent dismantling or destroying anyone's property, especially when there are plenty of other creepy and morally better ways to spend the night before Halloween. This Friday, a cemetery in Holland wants to give people a dark and spooky tour after the sun comes up. Holland Tasting Tours is selling tickets to their early morning cemetery tour of the Pilgrim Home Cemetery.
The tour begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 11:30 a.m. where you'll learn about a lady's "strong right arm" buried in the cemetery and other historical facts about the cemetery grounds. Each participant gets a Dutch treat. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $12 for children and can be bought here.
To learn a little bit about the cemetery before the tour, the city of Holland dives into it's past a little deeper:
Pilgrim Home Cemetery is an outgrowth of the burial grounds of Holland's first log church, built by the colonists in 1847. The log building was used for services until the congregation moved into its new building, the Pillar Church on Ninth Street, in 1857. The first recorded burial in the log church burial ground was September 21, 1854. The name officially became Pilgrim Home Cemetery on October 31, 1889.
I'm sure you've got nothing to worry about. I just wouldn't go wondering around late at night near the woods. You wouldn't want a chance encounter with any of the fabled Holland Lemonheads or any other Michigan urban legend.
