Summer Solstice Cemetery Tour


It all began in 2013, when Globe Main Street kicked off the first Summer Solstice Cemetery Tour to welcome summer in Globe in a unique way. The local, historic Globe Cemetery was created in 1878, and there’s a rich history behind this landmark. The first person buried there was Thomas Hammond, and his life (and death) story has intrigued visitors for decades.

Learn more about the city of Globe and its former citizens buried nearby. Local actors serve as guides, hosts, and bring history back to life. Storytelling and a few ghostly surprises are in store for this annual event. Get a sneak peek at what to expect during the Halloween tours and get to know Globe’s past in a fun way.

Ghosts and Globe

Keep an eye on Globe Main Street’s Facebook page for updates and more details. The tours take place throughout the solstice weekend. It’s a family-friendly affair suitable for history buffs, ghost lovers, and everyone in between.

History tends to repeat itself, and in the Wild West you never know if you want some aspects of our past to circle around. Don’t miss out on this annual event that’s sure to give you a few goosebumps.
