TOPIC:  HISTORY and HERITAGE (WEST)

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.  The ‘Spring Grove’s Heritage’ tour will teach you how Spring Grove began, about notable residents, and beautiful monuments, mausoleums, and horticulture. 

Group size is limited – These tours are meant for individuals or small groups.  If you have 5 or more people, please contact Irene Brown to schedule a private tour.  513-853-6877 or ibrown@springgrove.org 

Registration is required.  Registration will open on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 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.
