The 12th Annual Voices of Elmwood has a new lineup of past residents of Daviess County for you to meet.
If you have never been to Voices of Elmwood, you’re missing out on an amazing production put on by the Owensboro Museum of Science and History. The organization works for most of the year researching 10 people that rest in the Elmwood Cemetery from the 1800s. Then every fall, local actors in period costumes present the tale of the person they are portraying at the annual event, Voices of Elmwood.
If you go, you’ll board a wagon ride that will take you through the cemetery meeting all 10 people.
Don’t think this is a scary Halloween event! It is designed to honor the heritage and celebrate the history of that area.
This year there will be a total of nine evenings in September and October. Performances begin at 6:00 p.m. each evening, with the last wagon leaving at 9:00 p.m. each night. Stationary tent shows will be offered on October 3rd, 4th, and 5th and will begin at 6:00 p.m.
This year you can get excited to meet three football players from the Centre College Football team that beat Harvard in 1921. Harvard went into that game as undefeated while Centre College, a tiny school of 300 students in Kentucky, had not had much success in the football program in years past.
Tickets are $18 per person plus fees. They recommend getting your tickets early! Voices of Elmwood sells out almost every year.
Voices of Elmwood tours are about an hour and are not recommended for children under 12.
