The Toledo History Museum will present a “Behind the Scenes History Tour” of Toledo’s historic Woodlawn Cemetery, the final resting place of thousands of local residents including industrialists, politicians, social activists and countless other historic figures whose existence shaped our area and in many cases influenced the development of our country. This sitet is considered by many to be an outdoor museum of remarkable architectural structures and a unique representation of Toledo’s economic, social, and cultural vitality. Woodlawn’s development from a simple farm field to the serene setting it is today was inspired by the rural cemetery movement of the late 1800’s. Tour guide, Renee Jayne, author of the book Toledo’s Woodlawn Cemetery will tell the story of this most beloved Toledo institution.

This tour will take place on Saturday, October 28th from 4:00 am to 6:00 pm. Members of THM can purchase tickets for our Behind the Scenes History Tour of Woodlawn Cemetery for $5.00 each. Tickets are $10.00 for non-members. To purchase tickets go to the following site:
