TOPIC: HISTORY and HERITAGE

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.

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 [email protected]

Registration is required. Registration will open on June 29, 2019 at NOON.

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.
