The Farmers Branch Historical Park proudly presents:

Encounters from the Past

2017 Theme: "Stories of Service"

Friday, September 15
Saturday, September 16

Farmers Branch Keenan Cemetery
2570 Valley View Lane

Tours will run every fifteen minutes between 7 and 9 p.m.

Visit the Farmers Branch Keenan Cemetery to meet many of the deceased citizens of North Texas who have helped to shape Farmers Branch into the community it is today. The 2017 theme of the tours is "Stories of Service", focused on those citizens who served the Farmers Branch, Carrollton, and North Texas communities in substantial ways. This lamp-lit tour will feature many entirely new or updated stories this year. You and your family will have a chance to meet a World War I aeroplane pilot, a World War II nurse (and the only woman from our area to serve in the armed forces during that conflict), not to mention school teachers, firemen, mothers, preachers, and more as costumed actors take on the roles of these prominent citizens during an evening of storytelling, history, and family fun. Crafts and information will also be available. Tours depart every 15 minutes starting at 7 PM and ending at 9 PM. For more information contact the Historical Park by email or call 972.406.0184.
