Winter Walk at Green Lawn Cemetery

January 27, 2019 2:00 pm @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Winter brings a serenity to “this very special park,” Green Lawn Cemetery.Green Lawn‘s 171-year history makes it a place of reflection and beauty, and its 33 free-standing monuments are highlighted especially in winter.

The walk will be co-led by a naturalist, Randy Rogers, Green Lawn Board of Trustees President; and historian, Doreen Uhas Sauer, Columbus Landmarks Education Coordinator and Green Lawn Board Member. Doreen and Randy will share stories of notables and the less known who helped build our city, interpret Victorian Cemetery philosophy and design, and take us on an exploration of recent and planned restorations.

Tour begins inside the magnificent Huntington Chapel, located near the center of the cemetery. Please dress appropriately for the weather – this is an outdoor tour! Advance registration is recommended, but walk-ups will be accommodated (cash/check payable to Columbus Landmarks) – please arrive early (1:30 or later) to purchase tickets on-site.

Your ticket purchase supports the ongoing restoration efforts at Green Lawn and the work of Columbus Landmarks, advocating for historic preservation and excellence in new design. We thank you!
