OLE BONES HISTORIC GRAVEYARD TOUR
Ole Bones Tours is celebrating its successful 2019 launch with a ribbon cutting ceremony under the granite arch at Colonial Cemetery. The ribbon cutting will take place Wednesday, May 8, immediately followed by a reception at Cup to Cup Cafe. Free drip coffee, snacks, and (non-alcoholic) drink specials provided for all attendees.
Ole Bones is a historic tour that seeks to uncover all the history buried in Colonial Park, Savannah’s 270 year old graveyard. Owing to the prevalence of haunted tourism narratives in Savannah, the business was founded with a passionate focus on historical facts. Mr Bones, the business owner, holds ambitions of cemetery preservation and restoration projects. He asks that you celebrate with him this first step toward remembering the amazing people that built this beautiful city.

Several rental gallery spaces on the main floor offer working artists space to exhibit their latest work. There will also be weekly and monthly events open to the public which will include the courtyard space. Space can be requested to host a variety of events.
The goal of Cedar House Gallery is to provide a home for all types of artists, from students to professional, local and nomadic, where a community of creatives can grow together as well as sell their work. This home will serve as a place to educate to the public how the arts can enrich their lives.
