Join us for a walk at Oakwood Cemetery, where over twenty women involved in founding Mayo Clinic are buried. These physicians, nurses, librarians, secretaries, wives and mothers were instrumental from the day of the tornado in 1883 to the days of World War II. You will receive a map of the grave sites, meet several of the women (portrayed by local actors), and hear their stories firsthand.
