Long Beach's two oldest cemeteries transform into a Living History tour. It has grown into a local cultural phenomenon that brings the cemetery to near capacity with living people strolling about listening to tales of the dead. Strolling amidst the old tombstones, tour participants gather at selected grave stops to hear first hand tales that every cemetery plot has a story. The tour's volunteer actors come from all walks of life. They include teachers, retirees, business professionals and even a politician. Over the years, these individuals have ranged from historical figures who helped shape the city's political past to ordinary people whose stories remind us that rich or poor, well-known or barely remembered, everyone has a story to tell. The inhabitants of the graves are represented as authentically as possible by actors wearing period costumes and speaking in the first person of themselves and their times. Every script is researched by a historian using the HSLB archives, newspaper accounts and primary resources. Many cast members are professional actors.  Presented by the Historical Society of Long Beach
