Episode 8: Granbury Cemetery Tour

Featured Guest: Mary Ella Riley

Excerpt (Mary Ella Riley, about knowing the history of a community or town): “...it makes you have a little heart and love for some place when you know what happened from the beginning."

Excerpt (Tammy Dooley, when asked if Jessie James is actually buried in Granbury Cemetery): “Absolutely ... I embrace it. I will never not believe it. You cannot tell somebody in Granbury, Texas, that he is not. So, that's good enough for me."

Overview: On this episode of Uniquely Granbury, we’re going to address a longtime fascination with … cemetery tours. Yes … this is a thing, and it has been a thing for a long time. People love to visit cemeteries.The million-dollar question: Why? According to author and professor Keith Eggener.“Cemeteries are the coming together of these disparate states of life and death, nature and culture. Cemeteries are the places that those kinds of meetings of the past and the future come to the fore.”
That actually makes since. And it has to be why Tammy Dooley and her staff at Visit Granbury started to embrace the local cemetery and started promoting its cemetery tour in Granbury. They are kind of like this podcast, which puts an emphasis on the history and the people of this community.

Other guests include: Ben Holmes, Jack Martin and Aaron McClain
