This scenic driving tour highlights four heritage cemeteries while winding through the three cities and four rural townships of Waterloo Region. Each stop tells a historical tale of mischief, mystery, mayhem or murder: the Bean Puzzle tombstone (the poisoning by chocolate of Meta D. Cherry), ghostly nights with the founder of Castle Kilbride, and a bodysnatching in Kitchener. As part of Digital Doors Open, watch the video below for a tour of these four heritage cemeteries: Trinity Anglican Cemetery on 72 Blenheim Road in Cambridge, First Mennonite Church and Cemetery at 800 King Street East in Kitchener, Rushes Cemetery at 1915 Hutchison Road in Wellesley, and Fairmount Cemetery at 1062 Brewery Street in Baden (Wilmot Township).
