History comes alive at Oak City Cemetery

A good crowd braved the cold drizzle and rapidly darkening skies Thursday evening to enjoy the historical tour at Oak City Cemetery. Local actors took on the personalities of some of the more well-known persons buried there.

The stories of the lives of two married couples, Melvin and Flee Nussbaum and Paul and Charlotte Kwilecki were exceptionally well received, as many of the attendees were more familiar with them. Joe Livingston took on the part of Melvin, while Adrienne Harrison was Flee. Ridge Harper and Allyson Whittaker entertained with the stories of Paul and Charlotte Kwilecki.

The tour guides were especially helpful in lighting the way for those who chose to walk the route. Hay wagons were also available for those who preferred to ride.
