Cemetery Tour

The 2014 Cemetery Tour tells the stories of nine (9) people who lived in North Platte at different times, doing different things and entered the cemetery in almost unbelievable circumstances. Come and tour our cemetery. We anticipate that to see every “ghost actor”, you should plan for a 2 hour tour. Discover historical facts blended with community actors portraying each “ghost’s” story. It is guaranteed to be an unique entertainment experience!
