An Unforgettable Experience

Woodlawn Cemetery: Founded in 1873, this beautiful sanctuary with rolling terrain, majestic old growth trees and impressive monuments, contains a wealth of Allen County's history. On this tour you will hear about Lima's most prominent and notorious citizens with illustrious careers and, sadly, those who were met with tragic deaths.

These tours are rated PG-13 and not intended for young children. These are not haunted house tours, but eerie historical adventures that lean toward mystery and intrigue. We use historical facts, local legends, folklore and creative storytelling to inform and entertain.

Your Tour Guide will be Mr. George MacDonell of Lima’s historic MacDonell family whose ancestors reside throughout the cemetery and who played a major role in founding our city and county. George also serves on the Board of Woodlawn Cemetery.

Tours last approximately 2 hours but could vary. Dress appropriately for the weather as tours will occur **rain or shine. Wear comfortable shoes and take note that there is extensive walking and standing for the Woodlawn Cemetery Tours; no transportation will be provided.
