Dreams Are Made of This: The Immigrant’s Story
The 28th Annual Living History Tour at Angelus Rosedale Cemetery
Sunday, September 23
Tours depart from 9 a.m. until Noon
We are a nation of immigrants…we are a city of immigrants…and Angelus Rosedale Cemetery is the final resting place for thousands of immigrants who settled in Los Angeles from the 1830s through to the present day.
They came to America to follow their dreams…for opportunities and, often, to escape persecution. And now their stories will come alive at the landmark Angelus Rosedale Cemetery during the Annual Living History Tour. With the cemetery as the stage, actors, in costume and at graveside with set vignettes, will give first-person portrayals of some of the immigrants who are buried there. We’ll learn about their families, their successes and hardships, their hopes and dreams, and their contributions in business endeavors, to the city’s cultural heritage, and on the nation’s battlefields.read more...
