Kudos to the SLO History Center for the marvelous “Living History” walk and talk around the San Luis Cemetery on Nov. 1. Docents were dressed as actual pioneers and stationed at their “own” gravesites, telling visitors how they contributed to the founding of our city’s newspaper, railroad, Carnegie Library, etc.
One docent even depicted a former chef at the St. Andrew’s Hotel who murdered his wife and made the top of the FBI’s Most Wanted List. It took an incredible amount of work on the part of many, but was so enjoyed by us. The program was called SLO Souls — Meet the Eternal Residents of San Luis Cemetery.
We also had the pleasure of attending Dan Krieger’s talk at the Old Mission Cemetery on Oct. 30. Dan is a living treasure and brings to life the well-known names buried there with his stories.
Both were indeed educational family fun in the spirit of the season.
