The Elk County Historical Society will be hosting their 5th Annual Cemetery Walk this Friday and Saturday.
On Friday, Sept. 9 at 7 p.m., an oral history will be presented in the Center House Museum for those who cannot walk the cemetery. Refreshments will be served after the program.
The guided walking tour of Pine Grove, St. Leo's and Thayer Cemeteries will take place on Saturday, Sept. 10. To take part in the cemetery walk, meet at the Pine Grove Cemetery at 3 p.m.
"We encourage everyone to come and find out about the history," said society director Mary Kalinowski. "There is a lot of history in those three cemeteries and it's not just Ridgway residents buried there. There are a lot of people that were not even from here, they were just passing through and something tragic happened to them and they ended up spending an eternity here."
