About

TWILIGHT TOUR / SEPTEMBER 20, 2018 / 6:00PM

TOPIC: HISTORY and HERITAGE – WEST ROUTE

**This tour will meet behind the Spring Grove Funeral Home / Spring Grove location**

Members of the Cincinnati Horticultural Society formed a cemetery association in 1844. They endeavored to find a location suitable for creating a picturesque park like institution -- a rural cemetery -- contiguous to the city yet remote enough not to be disturbed by expansion. They sought to acquire enough land to be used for funerary purposes into the indefinite future, which could be embellished with shrubbery, flowers, trees, walks, and rural ornaments. These men traveled throughout the United States and Europe visiting cemeteries of outstanding reputation and beauty as they planned a cemetery that would equal the famed beauty of Pere la Chaise in Paris, and various outstanding cemeteries on the East Coast of the U.S. The ‘Spring Grove’s Heritage’ tour will teach you how Spring Grove began, about notable residents, and beautiful monuments, mausoleums, and horticulture.

This tour is FREE to the public. Registration is required. Registration will open on August 22, 2018 at NOON.
