The Warrenville Historical Society is happy to announce "Dead Men Talking - And Some Women -- V," which will be held on Sunday, Oct. 21.

The outdoor 45-minute tours will start every 15 minutes beginning at 6 p.m. with the last tour at 7:30 p.m.

Tours are given on a first come, first serve basis. For those not wishing to walk through the cemetery, a presentation by the interpreters will be given at 5 p.m. in Trinity Lutheran Church.

Cemetery tours begin at the Warrenville Cemetery, located on the north side of Warrenville road between Curtis and Warren, Warrenville.

Luminaries will light the way to lantern-lit gravesites where costumed interpreters will tell the stories of Warrenville citizens who lived 150 years ago in 1862, during the long second year of the American Civil War. Tour admission is free but donations will be accepted and are appreciated.

All donations benefit the Warrenville Historical Society. Parking is available at Trinity Lutheran Church located at the N/W corner of Curtis and Warrenville Rds. Refreshments will be served at Trinity Lutheran Church after the tours.
