Man who knows everything about cemeteries preps for Halloween tour
Howard Hamilton of Omaha is a real book of knowledge, especially when it comes to cemeteries.
He spent the afternoon with reporter Steve Saunders at Forest Lawn cemetery.
They went on a pre-Halloween tour, but come October 31st, Hamilton will be right back here to show people around on the spookiest night of the whole year.
His fascination for cemeteries fuels his enthusiasm.
"I was never scared or even as a kid," said Hamilton, who used to teach history at Metro Community College.
At the cemetery, there are many recognizable names on tombstones. Hamilton has a story for each one.
"I started to read every section of this 160 acres," said Hamilton. "It took me six months."
