On Sunday, October 17, The Toledo History Museum is sharing a unique opportunity for residents to rediscover Toledo’s past. Sure, you could Google “Who was Toledo’s first mayor?” or “Who designed the Old West End?”, but where is the fun in that? Friends of Forest Cemetery, in association with the Toledo History Museum, will be leading a two-hour walking tour introducing you to the prominent ghosts of our past (it is the certified spooky season after all).
Forest Cemetery is Toledo’s oldest burial site dating back to the 1840’s and the Friends of Forest Cemetery are dedicated to preserving its rich history. This free tour begins promptly at 2:00 pm, so please, arrive no later than 1:50 pm at the entrance at 1704 Mulberry Street. Parking is available inside the cemetery gates. Registration is not required, but you can show your interest through the link on their Facebook page. This grave encounter is wheelchair or mobility scooter accessible. Bring liquids and dress appropriately for the weather during this two-hour walk led by the cemetery docents.
