Scott Historical Society plans tour

Genealogist Betty Dols will hold a walking tour of Shakopee Valley Cemetery, which is the second oldest and only non-denominational cemetery in Shakopee, on Wednesday, Oct. 13, at noon.

Organized in 1862, it is the home of most of Shakopee’s town fathers. There will be stories of the earliest pioneers, the first mayor of Shakopee and grave robbers. Also, learn about the relationships of some of the early families, such as the Ponds, Holmes, Atwood, Apgar, Tuller and Hind.

Admission is free.
