We go to this event every year. It is wonderful to see young people protraying the colorful individuals buried at Mount Holly Cemetery, but only for one night per year. Park View Magnet High School Students are amasing. All should attend.

After staying at the Empress, was very interested in seeing this cemetery. Hornibrook, who built the Empress, was the fist monument you see as you enter. Be prepared to walk through this cemetery as you can not drive down most aisles.

Pre-Halloween, the Parkview Arts and Science Magnet High School actors dress as historic figures buried in the Cemetery and tell their life stories, in character, as you tour the grounds. It is always interesting. There are past governors, judges, common folk and odd events associated with Mount Holly. Plan to attend if you have never attended.

I have visited this cemetery on several occasions and am always fascinated by the historical significance of this place. They usually offer information brochures at the little chapel inside the grounds that provides information and location of some of the more prominent or interesting "residents". I recommend reading up on the story of David O. Dodd, the 17-year-old boy executed as a spy by the Union Army, before visiting his marker at Mt. Holly.
