In Their Steps
Starting from the Museum walk the steps of William Alan Bishop, Katherine Wilson, Thomas William Holmes, Allan Dunoon and Clarence David Lapierre.
This 3.5km walking tour takes you around Owen Sound, so it can be seen like never before
You may know that Owen Sound’s Greenwood Cemetery has three Victoria Cross Recipients interred within it, William Avery Bishop V.C., Thomas Holmes V.C., and David Vivian Currie V.C.
But, there are many other interesting military figures that have been laid to rest in its grounds since its 1854 creation. Cemeteries are wonderful places to explore as they contain many generations of stories and the history of a community.
