A Walk Through Woodlawn Cemetery
Join us on a walk through Woodlawn Cemetery as we talk to Al Paffrath and learn about the rich history that lies beneath the land. We get to know some of the people that are buried at the cemetery and some of the interesting artifacts that can be found scattered across the grounds. You will learn about everything from how the cemetery came to be, mysterious face statues uncovered in a tunnel, and the only revolutionary war soldier buried in Minnesota. By the end, viewers will be ready to take their next walk or hike at Woodlawn.
