WAHA's Living History Tour 2015

aug15waha5On Saturday, September 26, the West Adams Heritage Association presents the Living History Tour at Angelus Rosedale Cemetery, where visitors “meet” some of Los Angeles’s most interesting early pioneers, war veterans and entertainment industry personages as costumed actors, at graveside, portray their lives. Tour “shepherds” guide the visitors on a walking tour of the cemetery, describing many of the monuments and telling the stories of those who are buried in the grounds.

Kreps, the first LAPD motorcycle officer killed on duty, and Jackie Kelso, former Lead Alto Saxophonist of the Legendary Count Basie Orchestra.  

Tickets will go on sale in early August and cost $35 by September 10; after that date or at the door, $40 - space available. Purchase online or download a mail-in form at
