Green Lawn Cemetery is one of the oldest and largest cemeteries in Ohio. The cemetery represents a vast treasure, encompassing more than 200 years of history and is the resting place of many prominent Columbus residents. The tour will stop at several locations for informative talks about notable graves, monuments, family mausoleums, and the Huntington Chapel, to name a few. The cemetery is also home to 150 species of trees and several state champion trees, as well as a recognized bird sanctuary.
Columbus Outdoor Pursuits can provide easy-to-ride cruiser style bikes and helmets, or you may bring your own bike and helmet (please indicate on the registration). Please allow about 2 hours for the entire tour. Restrooms and free parking are available at Green Lawn Abbey, 700 Greenlawn Avenue — the start and end point of the tour. If weather conditions do not permit a safe trip, we will reschedule or provide you with a full refund.
