The City of Bartlesville-owned White Rose Cemetery will host the popular annual event “Mausoleum Stories” on Oct. 25-27, White Rose Coordinator Kim Inman said recently.
The event will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25, and Friday, Oct. 26, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, in the White Rose Mausoleum. The cemetery is located at 11th Street and Virginia Avenue in Bartlesville.
“Mausoleum Stories’ features the stories of several local pioneers and residents who are interred at White Rose Cemetery,” Inman said. “The ‘Guardian of the Stories’ will once again be on hand to draw these early Bartlesville pioneers out from their slumber to speak about their lives and adventures.”
Those portrayed in this year’s event are Union and Confederate soldiers Thomas Nicholson and Archibald Harvey, local suffragette Mary Reed, Cherokee Freedman Eliza Ledman and Ernest Lewis, who was killed in a shootout on Statehood Day.
Tickets are $10 each and may be purchased at the Bartlesville Public Library. For more information, call the Cemetery office at 918-338-4070 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
