TOUR HISTORIC GREENLAWN CEMETERY

Join us on Saturday, June 1 at 10 am as we visit Green Lawn Cemetery for a guided walking tour through Ohio’s second largest cemetery.  We will begin inside the historic Huntington Chapel, then stroll outside across the expansive grounds to explore unique monuments, special graves, and hear fascinating stories.  We will also visit several state champion trees and enjoy the rich natural environment that makes Green Lawn such a special cemetery park. 

Founded in 1848, Green Lawn is a vast tapestry of history, art, and nature. They are also part of the Scioto-River Green Lawn Audubon Important Bird Area and an arboretum.
