In December 1868, the Spring Vale Cemetery Association was organized, and a 150 acre tract two miles northeast of the city in the Longlois Reserve was purchased. It was laid out into 35 sections, in the rural cemetery style. Come learn more about this cemetery and some of the early Tippecanoe County residents buried here.
 
This walking tour is self guided, and a map will be provided. Docents will be stationed around the cemetery to talk about various burials.
 
Parking will be indicated inside the cemetery, to the left after entering the grounds.
 
This event is free and open to the public, no reservations required. Donations will be accepted and appreciated.
