Tales from the Crypt is a treat for the entire family. This graveyard tour promises to be a memorable experience for lovers of history and drama, for it is a combination of both. Tales from the Crypt re-creates the lives of noted personalities interred at historic Friendship Cemetery, the site of the Decoration Day that inspired the poem, The Blue and the Gray.

Tales from the Crypt is an award-winning project of history students from the Columbus-based Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science (MSMS). The project has won the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts and been named a national finalist by the History Channel for the Save Our History Classroom Award. The project has also been featured nationally by National Public Radio, Turner Broadcasting, The New York Times, The Atlantic, Garden & Gun, and a host of other regional publications. MSMS students research and develop characters with assistance from the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library archives staff.

Please arrive no later than 9 p.m. Tickets $5 for adults and $3 for students. Tickets sold only at Friendship Cemetery.
