This fall, locals can take guided walking tours through Lake Charles history and visit historic spots where time lies still. On Friday, November 5th, 2021, 5pm to 8pm, four Lake Charles cemeteries will be featured in a “Living History” Cemetery Tour where guests can hear stories of local iconic figures while visiting their final resting places.
Actors will dress in period attire and embody the lives of deceased historic figures from each of the four cemeteries. Guests will be guided throughout each cemetery as they listen to stories of the historic figures’ lives and their impacts on today’s Lake Charles. Larger-than-life figures such as trailblazer Judge Norma Holloway Johnson, Lake Charles Little Theatrefounder Rosa Hart, murderess Toni Jo Henry, and French aristocrat Michel Pithon, and others, will tell their life stories and their famed feats from their own perspectives.
