Virtual Graveyard & Gallows Walking Tour
August 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every 2 weeks that begins at 7:00 pm on Friday, repeating until August 27, 2021
Alongside an experienced guide, virtually explore the grounds of Macaulay Heritage Park, the historic estate of Reverend William Macaulay, who is credited with giving Picton its name. Tour the neighbouring graveyard at his former church and spot the unusual tombstone that’s in Ripley’s Believe or Not. The virtual tour will make its way to the nearby courthouse, where you’ll explore the exercise yards, jail cells and gallows, most famously used in the 1884 hanging of two local men, a sentence some say was based on dubious evidence.
