Pine Hill is Auburn’s oldest cemetery, dating back practically to the town’s founding in 1836. Every other year, Auburn Heritage hosts the Lantern Tour, where the public can be guided through the cemetery and meet a dozen or so “residents” of Pine Hill, in the form of locals who dress in period costume and offer 3-5 minute sketches of the historical person they are portraying. This event is a fund-raiser, with proceeds going toward upkeep of this cemetery.
Tickets for the Lantern Tour are $10 for the general public, $5 for students through university level.
