Springdale Cemetery is one of the oldest and largest cemeteries in Illinois.
This October, they are offering public tours with a fun twist.

They have found a way to bring this cemetery to life for the last nineteen years.

The money the actors raise goes towards helping the cemetery thrive⁠. In the past, the funds raised have been able to help with landscaping efforts and grave cleaning.

On the cemetery tour, you can hear true stories from historic local residents of Peoria.
The tour features five prominent Peorians who are really buried at the Springdale Cemetery.
Watch the interview video if you would like to learn more about how these people helped make Peoria a great city.
