Learn about the lives of famous women, artists, educators, plural wives and business owners buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery in the Avenues. Within its boundaries are three Jewish cemeteries, numerous veterans' areas, special monuments, and mysteries. Why were some people exhumed and moved out? Who is buried in Emo's grave? Why was a sexton banished to a deserted island in the Great Salt Lake? What are the origins of the urban legends connected to the cemetery? Join us to unravel the mysteries. Learn about early Salt Lake City history, art, and the cemetery's monuments, as well as the contributions of gentiles, Jews and pioneers who made their mark on Utah.
