Living History Cemetery Tour returns Saturday, November 4, from 4-7pm!

Learn about Lake Charles history by visiting historic spots where prominent locals settled into their final resting places. Actors in period attire will embody the lives of deceased historic figures at four local cemeteries, where they will tell their life stories. “Wandering Spirits” whose gravesites are unknown or elsewhere will make special appearances at the cemeteries.

Featured cemeteries will include:

Bilbo Cemetery (Lakeshore Drive)

Sallier Cemetery (Dr. Michael DeBakey Drive)

Combre Memorial Park (Opelousas Street)

Orange Grove Cemetery (Broad Street)

Guests will have the freedom to drive from cemetery to cemetery at their own pace.


Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, and free for children 12 and under (must be accompanied by a ticket holding adult.) They can be purchased here.

Pre-sale tickets are encouraged, but tickets will also be available on site at Bilbo Cemetery (Venmo or exact change only, please!.)

Come out and watch history come alive by hearing from the dead!
