The Colorado Springs Historic Preservation Board and Evergreen Cemetery are partnering to host a historic tour of the cemetery this Saturday as a unique way for citizens to celebrate our local history.

When: Saturday, May 21, 2011; 11:00 a.m.
Where: Evergreen Cemetery, 1001 S. Hancock Avenue (Just south of the intersection of Hancock Avenue and Fountain Boulevard)
