Historic persons to lead tour of Cold Springs Cemetery


Tue, Jun 14th 2022 11:35 am

The Niagara History Center Step Back in Time Players will host a public tour of Cold Springs Cemetery at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 26.

Guests can join quarryman James Schuler as he tells of his life and then leads a guided tour of the Cold Springs Cemetery with the assistance of cemetery historian Linda Lee. In this idyllic setting, guests will meet the City of Lockport’s first mayor, Benjamin Carpenter (Clint Starke); learn about Quaker Aunt Edna Smith (Pat Kibler-Fries), who assisted her physician husband during the construction of the Erie Canal; Dr. Skinner (Charles Begley) might diagnose what ails the guests, who will then be impressed by the family history of Aaron Mossell as told by his wife, Eliza Mossell (Brenda Reaves).

The tour will last a little more than two hours, so members of the public should wear comfortable walking shoes. Water and a camp stool are suggested. Guests can call 716-434-7433 for reservations, or stop into 215 Niagara St., Lockport. The tour will be conducted from full sun to light sprinkle. The group will meet at the white house after the turn off Cold Springs Road. Cost is $10 per person.
