BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Halloween is just a few weeks away and Birmingham’s oldest cemetery is capitalizing on this time of year to help teach people about the magic city’s unique history.

Volunteers are playing some of the more notable characters buried inside Oak Hill Cemetery.

More than a hundred people spent part of their Saturday touring the graves to hear the stories.

If you didn’t make it out today, you still have a chance to do so.

The next fall history tour is Sunday, October 27th.
