Chattanooga Historical Society Announces Fall Tour Series

  • Tuesday, September 6, 2022

The Chattanooga Historical Society, announces a second season of walking tours, with the introduction of a new historic tour. Following the success of the True Crime Walking Tour,  the organization will be adding a guided tour of Forest Hills Cemetery.

The tours, which will occur Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, will start Sept. 29 and run until Nov. 12. The historical society will continue with their successful True Crime Tours, which will take guests on a tour through Chattanooga's true crime history, with stories taken straight from the headlines. The organization will also be starting a lantern-led Tour of Forest Hills Cemetery, covering the history of the grounds, mourning rituals, and the (sometimes scandalous) stories of the people buried there.

The highlight of the tour series will be a special VIP tour of the cemetery after the gates close during Halloween weekend, sponsored by Southern Spear LLC. Additional information will be forthcoming.

The Chattanooga Historical Society is a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to bring history to the surface, making it accessible to everyone. It is committed to preserving Chattanooga’s regional history and culture while connecting the public with dynamic educational opportunities and resources.

Tour tickets will go on sale Friday. Ticket sales will benefit the organization's mission and programming. Tickets can be purchased at Picnooga.org/walking-tours.

For additional information, please call Lindsay Stuber at 541-9981 or info@picnooga.org.
