Mount Hope Cemetery Walking Tour

June 3 @ 10:30 am

Famous Families, Freedom Seekers & a Forgotten Soldier

The Mount Hope Cemetery walking tour reveals a community of neighbours, business owners, politicians, rebels and ordinary people whose stories left their mark on Kitchener.
Kitchener’s history, dating back just over 150 years, is revealed by the names and stories found in the cemetery. This Mount Hope Cemetery walking tour includes stories from the time when Kitchener was called Berlin – including the fascinating story of the name change. The stones and memorials are the gateway to the stories of local famous families, freedom seekers and a forgotten World War 1 soldier.

Through the community of people in this cemetery, we explore the story of Berlin celebrating “Power to the People” in 1910, and the names that made this ‘tiny Berlin’ known as an industrial powerhouse, famous for German quality products such as leather, buttons, tires, footwear, and furniture.
