“Voices of Elmwood” is a celebration of history, designed to honor our region’s heritage and the lives of the many people buried at Owensboro’s Elmwood Cemetery.
The 16th annual Voices of Elmwood will be held at Elmwood Cemetery, beginning the evening of September 21, 2023 and will run for a total of nine evenings in September and October.
Founded by the Owensboro Museum of Science and History, in collaboration with the Daviess County Public Library, Voices of Elmwood 2023 will offer ten new stories of people from our community. Local actors in period costumes present the story of the person they are portraying.
Wagon rides will leave every thirty minutes each evening and stop for each actor’s presentation.
Tent shows, perfect for large church groups, supper clubs, tour buses or patrons preferring not to ride in the wagons, will be offered on Oct 5-7, and will begin at 6:00 p.m. This will take place of the 6:00 p.m. Wagon Ride.
Wagon guides and Tent Show Hostesses provide additional historical information throughout the performances. The tours last about an hour and are not recommended for children under twelve years of age. Patrons should arrive fifteen minutes prior to their wagon’s departure time or tent show performance.
Over seventy-five community volunteers help create and present Voices of Elmwood, which is hosted by Rosehill-Elmwood Cemetery and sponsored by Dahl and Groezinger, Inc. Elmwood Cemetery is located at 1300 Old Hartford Road, Owensboro, Kentucky, 42303 and parking is available on site.”
