Costumed actors will portray individuals from Oregon's early history, each making a brief appearance a their respective graves, to talk about interesting facts and incidences concerning their lives.
~ Participants travel by bus between locations that include a grave within the Champoeg State Heritage Area, in addition to both the Butteville and Champoeg cemeteries. Live music by the local group, Heartstrings, and fresh strawberry shortcake will complete the tours in the historic Manson barn behind the Visitor Center.
