Event description

Description

History Tour and Photo Treasure Hunt

Join with fellow nerds as Dale Hoyt, Spring Grove's docent extraordinaire, walks us through the stories of Cincinnati as experienced by those interred there.

Tour Details:

  • Gather at Spring Grove's main office at 1:50 PM on Saturday, September 28 and plan to walk the grounds for approximately two hours. Spring Grove is hilly in spots, so please wear comfy shoes and remember your water bottle.

  • Ask questions! Our tour guide is extremely knowledgeable on cemetery history.

Treasure Hunt Details:

  • The evening before your trip to Spring Grove, a list of treasures to capture on camera will be emailed to you for your self-guided treasure hunt.

  • Plan extra time for yourself either before or after our walking tour. Remember, walking tour begins promptly at 2:00 PM.

  • Post to social media and tag #NerdGirlTours, #SpringGroveCemetery and #OhioPoeFans

  • Saturday is the busiest day for funerals at Spring Grove Cemetery. Please show the utmost respect for grieving families by steering clear of any areas that may be prepared for burial. You will see a green tent and chairs set up, and often freshly dug graves.

LOGISTICS: Tickets for this event will be $8 (that's $10.12 after processing fees). This is an outdoor field trip in September and will be held rain or shine or heat or chill. That being said, our event may be called off if there is a threat of lightening. Weather-related cancellations will be made within two hours of start via EventBrite notifications should the need arise. Participants will be asked to sign a liability waiver upon arrival, so please be sure to check in with The Nerd Girl, Sarah Strouse. Tickets are refundable up to seven days before our event.
