A Tour To Die For is a collaboration between the North Lincoln County Historical Museum, Taft Pioneer Cemetery Association and Theatre West. Stories about the residents of the Cemetery are united with actors to literally bring the history of Lincoln City to life.
Your tour guide is well versed in the legends and lore of our town. You’ll hear the Native American legend about the creature that lives in Devils Lake, as well as other mysterious occurrences along the way to the cemetery.
Your final destination is the final destination of many of the early settlers of Lincoln City: Pioneer Cemetery. You’ll meet six of the people interred here while taking a lantern tour lasting about 60 minutes. Of course, you will also hear an eternity of fascinating tales.
Ninety two years ago, Mr. Bones, owner of the grocery store in the Taft district of Lincoln City, donated land for the City’s first cemetery. Taft Pioneer Cemetery is on a hill with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean (which is to die for). This year, Mr. Bones invites you for an evening tour so he can introduce you to some of the folks who reside there.
