NIGHT WATCHMAN - We are watchman employed by the cemetery because there are grave robbers and body snatchers.  Grave robbing –stealing valuables that might be buried with loved one. Body snatching, these people are also called resurrectionists, - take body and sell to physicians or medical schools.  We will be passing some famous Cincinnati family plots to make certain they are undisturbed, but because we do this every night we have noticed other markers and their meanings.

**There is no charge for these tours.  We do ask that you bring a DONATED ITEM that will benefit Matthew 25 Ministries – personal care and hygiene supplies, cleaning supplies, and non-perishable food items. 

 Due to the popularity of this event we require advance registration for all tours.Tour group sizes are limited.

Registration will open at NOON on June 14, 2019.
