Spooky History Lesson at Oak Hill

Oak Hill Cemetery had quite a few visitors Saturday night during the second ever Twilight Tour in its 164-year history.

The tour showcased live re-enactors featuring Karl Kae Knecht, Henry E. Cook, Albion Fellows Bacon, a WWI nurse and many more.

23 ash trees reside in the cemetery, so the tour also benefited the ‘adopt-an-ash’ program which saves ash trees from the emerald ash borer.

Participants were able to walk around the cemetery and hear about some of its residents and their past.

"She brought about ventilation and proper housing and on Martin Luther King and Court Street, they're named after her,” said Susan Hansen who played Albion Fellows Bacon.

If Albion Fellows Bacon sounds familiar, that’s because there’s a center named after her in Evansville that provides 24-hour services to victims of abuse.
