Bagdad Historic Cemetery
Outing Description: In the spirit(s) of Halloween, let’s photograph this beautiful cemetery in historic Bagdad, FL.
Each grave in the Bagdad Historic Cemetery represents a part of the history and success of Bagdad, a once-thriving mill town now a historic village listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Check out their Website for the interesting significance of this burial ground. Bagdad Historic Cemetery | BagdadLiving | Village of Bagdad https://www.bagdadliving.com/bagdad-historic-cemetery
*Saturday, October 21, 2023 (Alternate Date)
NOTE: I know not everyone can attend on a weekday, so if you can’t make it to the Monday outing, on Saturday October 21 from 9am-Noon there is a really cool event that the Bagdad Historic Cemetery Association is offering! It is “Legends and Lore Tour”. Neighborhood historians will take you through the times in history that formed the Village of Bagdad. Actors portraying historic personalities shed perspective of what it was like to live in the most prosperous southeastern village during the 1800s. I’m planning on going. Let me know if you are interested and it can be an UNofficial outing! (I would have made THIS the outing but know that we photographers like to take our time and photograph moody photos without distractions. Now you have a choice!)
