The Odd Fellows were the second largest benevolent fraternal organization in America in the 19th century. Guided by their core principles “Visit the sick, Relieve the Distressed, Bury the Dead,” they helped their members through the difficulties of life. Many Cincinnati Odd Fellow Lodges chose Spring Grove Cemetery as the final resting place for their members. On this tour, you’ll learn about this intertwining of the group and Spring Grove. You’ll learn more about the philosophy and activities of the Odd Fellows and you’ll meet some of the many Odd Fellows at rest in Spring Grove.
Registration is required. Group size is limited. Registration will open on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at NOON.
Children 12 and under are FREE / Adults $5 / Seniors (55+) $4
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.
