Green Lawn Cemetery

We Pray For The Sick and Bury The Dead: Accepting or Redlining the Dead.

A guided walking tour and discussion of how migrations, immigrations, cultural practices, wars, public disasters, and laws created a patchwork of ethnic and institutional burial enclaves—and how new customs are evolving.

Tours are FREE but registration is required: https://tinyurl.com/ntkrh9xj

Location: Tours begin at the Huntington Chapel near the middle of Green Lawn Cemetery.

This tour is part of a three-part series supported by generous funding from the Ohio Humanities Council.

Green Lawn Cemetery, Columbus Metropolitan Library, and Columbus Landmarks partnered to promote, research, and archive for future researchers a deep look into Green Lawn, central Ohio’s preeminent Victorian cemetery and special park, and over the course of the year have solved some of its unanswered questions.
