Repeats every day 2 times.

Encounters from the Past is back for another year!

Encounters from the Past is back for another year! Come to the Farmers Branch Keenan Cemetery to meet many of the deceased citizens who have helped to shape Farmers Branch into the community it is today. Featuring many new stories this year (and some old favorites) you and your family will have a chance to meet everyone from our first female postmistress to a traveler who met an early and mysterious demise to a mother who fought for better schooling for her children. Costumed actors will take on the roles of these prominent citizens during an evening of storytelling, history, and family fun. Crafts and information will also be available.

Tours depart every 15 minutes starting at 7 PM and ending at 9 PM on the evenings of Friday, September 18th and Saturday, September 19th. The tours will feature a few different characters each evening, so repeated attendance is encouraged. Tickets cost $5 per person, with proceeds going towards a local school or nonprofit organization.
