Old Jonesborough Cemetery Tours Return Memorial Day Weekend

JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. – Old Jonesborough Cemetery tours return on 2:30 p.m. every Saturday beginning May 27 and running through October at Rocky Hill and College Hill cemeteries. Tickets are $3.

Burial customs of the 1800’s, the lives of the people buried there, and so much more are discussed. This season, guests might even meet a spirit or two among the tombstones who will want to share his or her story. 

Guests meet the tour guide at the top of East Main Street; follow the brand new sidewalk up the hill, in the Old Jonesborough Cemetery. Proceeds from the tour help fund the ongoing preservation and maintenance of the cemeteries. Combo tickets for $7 per person are available when purchasing both a cemetery ticket and another tour option.

For more information on the tours, or to schedule a tour for a larger group, contact the Heritage Alliance at 423-753-9580.
