Fifteen grave sites of area residents from past generations will be visited. Docents in period dress will give first person narratives about the life and contributions of these early settlers including insight into local history. To acknowledge the nine Civil War veterans buried in the cemetery, there will be a Civil War re-enactment and memorabilia from that conflict on display. A bake sale will also be held. The cemetery is adjacent to original prairie land, a registered Illinois Natural Heritage Landmark.
