Langford Cemetery’s 150th commemoration

August 26, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT

This year marks a major milestone for one of the region’s oldest historical sites.

On August 26 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, the Langford Cemetery Board is hosting an event to commemorate the 150th  anniversary of pioneer Issac Langford’s death at age 54 in 1873. 

The cemetary actively operate as a “private” cemetery which means they must raise  our own funds for care and maintenance (we receive no financial help from the Town of Bracebridge),” says local historian Gary Denniss  We operate under the guidelines of the Bereavement Authority of Ontario as did allregistered cemeteries in Ontario.

There will be a $5 charge per adult…kids will enter for free. We have plans for a silent auction, a picnic lunch, contests and a guided tour of the cemetery who will point out the historical highlights of the site. A commemorative history of Laangfird Cemetery will sold to augment our care and maintenance fund.
