The Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery will offer three opportunities to experience the beauty of the cemetery in winter. The tour route is entirely on flat, paved roads that are routinely plowed by cemetery staff. In addition to general information about Mount Hope, tours will include stops at the graves of famous suffragist Amy Post and Edward Crone, who served in World War II with author Kurt Vonnegut and was the model for Vonnegut's "Billy Pilgrim" character. The cemetery's newest mausoleum and an impressive monument erected by the Union Pacific Railroad are also on the tour.

Price: $10
