The Preservation Society of Chapel Hill Coupons and Deals
While this Tar Heel city boasts plenty of famous basketball players and politicians, some of Chapel Hill's most interesting residents now lie six feet under. Explore our city's history and learn about the lives of those who once were during The Preservation Society of Chapel Hill's one-hour Voices from the Grave walking tour of Old Chapel Hill Cemetery. Pay $15 (regularly $30) for two tickets to this family tour on Friday, October 19, or on Saturday, October 20, and spend some time weaving through the headstones. Beginning at 7 p.m., you'll depart from the cemetery's gazebo and explore the final resting places of well-known North Carolinians like William Meade Prince, author of The Southern Part of Heaven; Inez Stacey, the first UNC Dean of Women; and more. After hearing the bevy of stories regarding our town's past, you may come to realize that dead men really do tell tales -- or at least, inspire them. Want more?
