B. Perrine, the Bisbee’s, who are credited as taking many of the area’s first photographs and even Twin Falls’ notorious serial killer Lyda Southard.  Southard, by the way, was suspected of killing her four husbands, a brother-in-law, and her daughter by using arsenic poisoning in the early 1900’s in order to obtain life insurance money.  After an investigation into the suspicious deaths all pointed to Southard, law enforcement launched a nationwide search for her.  She was in Honolulu, at that time married for the fifth time to Navy petty officer Paul Southard, and was extradited to Idaho in early 1921 and was arraigned on June 11, 1921.  These guided cemetery tours will run from 11a ‘til 5p on Saturday, each tour running about an hour.  Its recommended that you purchase your tickets in advance - $10 for adults, $5 for kids – and you can buy ‘em  by visiting www.rotaryafterhours.com
