About

The Mt. Pleasant Pioneer Cemetery Heritage Walking Tour is an event created on behalf of the Brant Railway Heritage Society, bringing the history of the village to life.

Small groups, of approximately 12/15 will be participating in a guided tour through the old part of the cemetery. Stops will be made at the graves of historical persons where hopefully descendants in period attire will tell the stories of their ancestors. Following the tour, we will gather at the Mt. Pleasant Community Centre, for refreshments.

Hear the story of a War of 1812 vet, the story of Willy Winer Cooke, killed beside General Custer at the Little Big Horn, and more !!
