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.
