An Evening Among the Dead

This evening, something of interest is happening in the Community Room at the Hudson Area Library, 51 North Fifth Street. As part of the library's Local History Speaker Series, Kelley Drahushuk, whose family history in Hudson dates back to the 19th century, will present "Raising the Dead: Tales from Hudson's Crypts." The presentation begins at 6:00 p.m. 

The announcement of the event reads in part:
Long touted as "a virtual treasure trove for historians and enthusiasts of American funerary art," the Hudson Cemetery includes over 10,000 grave sites for a wide range of interesting and notable individuals, including the Proprietors and their ancestors [sic], war heroes, famous artists, paragons of industry, disaster survivors and much more. Learn about the history of the original cemetery, more recent history and discoveries as well as its current layout. All attendees will receive a free map of Cedar Park with highlighted sites discussed in this presentation--do your own walking tour and make new discoveries!
The event, which is presented by the library's History Room Committee, is free and open to the public.
