Sunday, Jun. 19, 2022


2PM - 4PM


Green Lawn Cemetery

Tasteful and Appropriate Decoration and Improvement: Art, Artifice, And The Natural World.

A guided walking tour and discussion of how memorialization changes, how “good taste” was defined, the importance of keeping the “roots” of Green Lawn’s hardwood forest origin, why Green Lawn is laid out backwards, and why it does not look like Cincinnati’s Spring Grove Cemetery.

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

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.
