Warner Robins Heritage Society hosts annual Cemetery Crawl

Warner Robins Heritage Society hosts the crawl yearly, giving people a chance to learn about history.

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — People interested in learning Warner Robins history picked a unique way to do it Saturday – a weekend cemetery crawl!

Warner Robins Heritage Society hosts the crawl yearly, giving people a chance to learn about history.

The tour was self-guided with seven stops. Board members were there, ready to give out knowledge on each cemetery.

The tour stops featured the Castellow, Wheelus, and King Family Cemetery.

Catherine Silingo serves on the society’s board and says the four-year-old tradition is a fun way to learn.

“It just started out being a way to identify all the cemeteries in Warner Robins. These are old cemeteries people don't even know exist, and we've gone out and identified them. We have cleaned them up,” she said.

Tickets were $12 per car, and at least 40 vehicles were registered.

The heritage society says the money collected from the cemetery crawl goes into printing costs and planning future events for WWII veterans.
