Upcoming Event - 6th Annual Rose Hill Cemetery Tour

6th Annual Rose Hill Cemetery Tour in Matawan, New Jersey 

Sunday, October 16, 2016 at 2:00 PM

Please join us for our annual walking cemetery tour, this year featuring more ghost stories about what is widely considered to be New Jersey's most haunted cemetery!

As we carefully weave our way around ancient tombs and headstones, you will hear fascinating stories about:
• The great Matawan fire of 1901
• A gruesome murder in 1896
• Prohibition violence
• The lawmen of Matawan
• Trouble at the Mausoleums
• Actual paranormal sightings at Rose Hill Cemetery revealed!

TICKETS: PRICE TBA. Tickets are only available at the event.

YOUR GUIDE: Al Savolaine, Matawan Town Historian, Rose Hill Cemetery Historian, and author of “Stanley Fisher: Shark Attack Hero of a Bygone Age.” (Books will be available for purchase and signing.)

LOCATION: Matawan’s Rose Hill Cemetery on Ravine Drive, near the intersection of Ravine and Middlesex Road.

PARKING: Limited parking is available at the cemetery. If you park in the cemetery, do not block the roads as it is an active cemetery. Additional parking is available at the Ravine Drive Elementary School, less than 300 yards from Rosehill's entrance.

THIS IS A CHARITY FUNDRAISING EVENT. All proceeds will benefit Rose Hill Cemetery preservation. All participants are volunteers donating their time and efforts.

This event is sponsored by the Matawan Historical Society and Rose Hill Cemetery.
