The Rotary Club of Saline invites you to get to know the people who lived here in the 1800s.  Find out how a Confederate soldier was buried right here at Oakwood Cemetery with other Union soldiers.  Did you know that Saline had a famous photographer that went to Hollywood?  Have you heard about the Saline Valley Cooperative?

There will be people dressed in period clothing sharing the experiences of the past.  Most will be standing near their tombs. Through the many stories, you will learn some of our Saline history which made our community unique.

One attendee shared, “I have driven by this cemetery to and from work for years and never noticed it.  Now the Saline people buried there have  come alive for me.  It was very interesting.”  Another person that attended last year’s tour shared that she was so excited to hear about the lives of her Great, Great Grandparents.

This year there are all new people and stories to be shared.  Come and let the Saline of the 1800’s come alive for you!
