Tree & Tombstone Walking Tour Planned
The Historic Woodlawn Cemetery will hold the semi-annual Tree and Tombstone Walking Tour on Sunday, October 9 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.
The theme, “They Built This City,” will explore how industrial pioneers still impact the community, the elaborate monuments they built and the beautiful arboretum that frames every corner of the experience.
By the turn of the century, Woodlawn had become the cemetery of choice for Toledo’s civic, professional and industrial leaders. The elaborate monuments and private family mausoleums erected by these leaders are truly stunning and, as the original designers planned, augment the natural beauty of the space. Guides Fred Folger and Robert Lamlein will tell the “They Built This City” story about Toledo’s industrial pioneers and highlight the autumn colors on dis-play in the certified arboretum, representing more than 100 varieties of stately trees.
