RHHM: Tales from the Midway Cemetery

  • Richmond Hill History Museum 11460 Ford Avenue Richmond Hill, GA, 31324 United States (map)

Diane Kroell, director of the Midway Museum, will tell the strange and interesting history of the Midway Cemetery, which has been in use since before the Revolutionary War. The cemetery is the burial ground for many Civil War and Revolutionary war figures including Col. James Screven. Its brick enclosure allowed it to serve as a horse corral by Union troops during the Civil War. The cemetery also holds many strange tales and legends, including that of William Robarts, who is buried in the cemetery alongside his three young wives who were allegedly all poisoned by a jealous servant. Join us to hear these stories and more. 

$5 donation to the museum for non-members; members of Richmond Hill Historical Society admitted for free.
