Lockport troupe presents cemetery tour

LOCKPORT – The Step Back in Time Players will portray six deceased but noteworthy Lockport residents in a tour of Glenwood Cemetery on Glenwood Avenue in Lockport from 1 to 3 p.m. Aug. 7.

The “Cemetery Tales” will include the life stories of Washington Hunt, the only Niagara County resident to serve as governor of New York, and his wife, Mary Walbridge Hunt. They will be played by Henry Peters and Kathy Heinemann.

Charlie Begley will portray Lockport artist Raphael Beck, whose early 20th century works include a painting depicting the opening of the Erie Canal and the city’s veterans’ monument.

Clint Starke will play Wallace Keep, whose home is now the Lockport Presbyterian Home. Marsha Zimmer will portray Isabella Sutherland, one of the seven Sutherland sisters whose late 19th century antics rivaled the Kardashian sisters.

Ann Marie Linnabery will have the role of Anna Merritt, an educator after whom a Lockport elementary school is named.

The walking tour will be held rain or shine. The price is $10 and reservations may be made by calling the Niagara History Center at 434-7433.
