WHO LIES BENEATH: FAMOUS PEOPLE BURIED IN THE TREASURE VALLEY
Class meets in the Cloverdale Funeral Home Reception Center - entrance is at the green awning.
THIS COURSE IS NOW CLOSED. WINTER SESSION REGISTRATION OPENS JANUARY 6, 2019. COME BACK AND SEE US!
There are still openings remaining at this time.
The cemeteries of the Treasure Valley have thousands of residents. Each has their own story. Some famous, infamous, and some just plain interesting. The class is a virtual walking tour of the cemeteries of Boise, the Treasure Valley, and even beyond in Idaho. But we don't have to worry about the weather or walking for miles! Some examples of the people discussed: a former governor of Idaho and the man who blew him up; the last professional lady bronc rider; the last man legally hanged in Idaho; the man who had the first house in the country heated with geothermal hot steam; the first Jewish governor in the U.S.; Idaho's James Bond; and Idaho's "Wyatt Earp." Learn local color!
You will see photos of the people as well as photos of their gravesites.
