Cemetery Tour

Cemetery TourEach year the North Platte Public Library Foundation hosts a cemetery tour. What is a cemetery tour you ask? A cemetery tour features actors performing a living history presentation. Local actors stand at the graveside in period costume, and tell their unique and interesting stories in a dramatic storytelling presentation.

2013 will feature local notorious characters featured in Nellie Snyder Yost’s true-crime story “Evil Obsession”. Set in the “Little Chicago” days of North Platte, corrupt politicians, madames, prostitues, bootleggers and gangsters will come to life at the North Platte City Cemetery.
