TOPIC: ARTISTS in the GROVE
The interpretation of the term artist for this tour is used to include the makers of monuments as well as painters, sculptors, and even those who practiced the “art” of watchmaking, furniture making, and sculpting our landscape. This lengthy tour (90mins plus) will cover parts of the cemetery that most never see. While riding on the tram you will be treated to wonderful views of Spring Grove and see monuments that are rarely seen on other tours.

Since its founding 150 years ago, Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum has been an important part of Cincinnati's heritage. It serves as a guardian of much of Cincinnati's past. In 1995, the Board of Trustees established the Spring Grove Heritage Foundation to educate the public about and promote the natural beauty and historic integrity of Spring Grove in ways not normally covered by the cemetery's operations. Through the sponsorship of events, tours, workshops and seminars, the Foundation serves to promote Spring Grove's cultural, historic, and natural resources. Often referred to as a "museum without walls," Spring Grove possesses fine art and architecture of eclectic styles as diverse as any collection. Your $4 or $5 donation goes to the Spring Grove Heritage Foundation.
