2nd Annual Eaton Cemetery Walk 

The second annual Eaton Cemetery Walk will be Saturday, June 17 at 10 a.m. and Monday, June 19 at 7 p.m. As you walk through Eaton’s past, you will discover familiar names: Tateyama, Magnuson, Allison, Dorsey, Nix, Haythorn, Roy & Sullivan to name a few.  Curators Georgia Inloes and Susan Nelson will bring to life the stories behind each tomb stone.  These family names are among the strong, determined people who made Eaton what it is today. Many descendants remain an active part of our thriving community.
