Evergreen Cemetery Walking Tour

On Evergreen's numerous tombstones are inscribed dozens of Tucson's most famous names. There are father and son retail giants Albert and Harold Steinfeld, along with pioneer suffragette and newspaperwoman Josephine Hughes. Sports fans will remember James "Pop" McKale, while railroad aficionados recall Col. Epes Randolph and political wonks honor Henry Jaastad. While occasional walking tours are conducted in the cemetery, the next one will be extra special: On Sunday, Oct. 7, Evergreen will mark its centennial by hosting numerous free tours throughout the day. This will be an opportunity for everyone to learn something about the people who developed present-day Tucson and the legacy they left behind for us to build on.
