Have you ever walked through a cemetery and wondered about the people and their stories? Here's your chance to learn more about Texarkana's history in a bit of a creepy way with a walk through the Stateline Cemetery. Well, it is October, right?

On Saturday, October 24, from 6:30PM to 8:30PM it's the Talking Dead Living History Museum Tour as the Texarkana Museum Systems take you on a guided tour of the Stateline Cemetery complex. This will include the primary cemetery, the Masonic Section, the African-American section, Mt. Sinai Memorial Garden, and Woodlawn Cemetery.

As you walk through the cemetery you will be visited along the tour route by those buried at the cemetery as they share their stories. This is an evening tour and guests should dress for the weather. Tickets must be purchased in advance! There will be no parking inside the cemetery during the tour, so call for directions to the closest parking. For more information, please call 903-793-4831. Tickets on sale online now Benefiting the Texarkana Museums System and the P. J. Ahern Home Museum.
