Tour of St. Patrick’s Cemetery

Join Historic Geneva curator John Marks and board member Eric Lewis for a tour of St. Patrick's Cemetery in Geneva. This is the third tour Historic Geneva has run of the cemetery since 2019. This installment will include 20th-century burials in the cemetery, primarily of second and third generation Irish and Italian immigrants to the community. Associated with St. Francis de Sales Church (now part of Our Lady of Peace Parish), the burials at St. Patrick's are mostly of the city's early Catholic immigrants and their descendants.

The tour takes place rain or shine. Reservations are recommended but not required. Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased in advance here through 5 p.m. on October 23. Tickets can also be purchased at the cemetery on the day of the tour with exact change or a check. Call Historic Geneva at 315-789-5151 with questions or for more information.
