The Idaho Falls City Canal

Materials and Handouts from our Rose Hill Treasure Tour

Held at Rose Hill Cemetery on Saturday, October 7, 2017, our first showing drew about 100 attendees. It began at the flag pole near the bridge crossing the canal on the southeast side, and included activities across the oldest section of the cemetery. Speakers presented a history of the cemetery and biographical information about nine of the prominent citizens buried at the Rose Hill Cemetery. Information was also available on over 20 other graves of historical interest.

Handouts are available here as PDFs:
