By Victoria Pike

The 12th Annual "Silent City" Columbia City Cemetery Tour was held Monday, October 1, 2018. Historical notes of each individual selected are reflected by presenters in a graveside vignette about the person buried there.

Attendees first gather at the Adair Public Library, 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, and then travel the few blocks as a group to the cemetery where presenters are positioned. The entire program lasts about an hour, then everyone goes back to the library for a reception.



The 2018 historical characters selected and their presenters were:

Kate Grady by Ernestine Bennett
Timoleon Cravens by Mike Watson
Joseph Eubank by David Eubank
Emma Eubank by Melanie Brown.
Herschel Tate Baker and Mattie Baker by J.D. and Ellen Zornes
Judge Rollin T. Hurt by Steven Baker

October is Family History Month in the United States and the Silent City Tour is the Library's effort to kick-off a month of family and local history research. The event is sponsored by Adair County Genealogical Society and Adair County Public Library.
