Alumni Class: Historic Woodland Cemetery Tour & Happy Hour
A walk through Woodland Cemetery is a step through the history of the city of Des Moines. A popular stop for the Community Leadership Program Opening Retreat, join us for this historic cemetery tour with local history buff, Archie Cook. Explore the stories of recognizable community leaders who have been buried here, names such as Fleur, Hubbell, Perkins, Sherman, A. Arthur Davis and more. Top off the evening with a happy hour at Carl's Place, to catch up with fellow alum.
Woodland Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in Des Moines, having been established in 1848, before Des Moines was the state capital.
