Tour Walnut Grove on foot this Memorial Day weekend and see the cemetery at its finest when it is filled with hundreds of flags to mark the holiday. Steffanie Haueisen will share many highlights of the cemetery, primarily in the older, western half of the site. Visit the resting places of many of the people who built Worthington’s foundation. Many Worthington area streets are named after those buried at Walnut Grove who contribute to Worthington’s rich history. The tour will meet by the office near the Milton Street entrance and will be about one and a half hours. Parking is available by the service buildings as well as along the roads. Rain or shine!

Guests to the Orange Johnson House are invited to take a tour, as well as make some grave rubbings from special plates belonging to the Society. Put together by John Snouffer, these plates depict the grave markers of notable Worthington residents that are buried at St. John’s Episcopal Cemetery as well as popular imagery that appears on many 19th century gravestones. Rubbings are made on these plates at Pioneer Days by third graders when the event is hampered by inclement weather. Try your hand at grave rubbing at the OJ House, and then perhaps even venture to a local cemetery to document the marker of an ancestor or notable Worthington resident!

This Memorial Day will mark the 97th year that Leasure-Blackston Post 239 of the American Legion has sponsored the Worthington Memorial Day Parade and the Memorial Day Service. The parade starts at the American Legion Post and ends in Walnut Grove Cemetery at the Circle of Honor, where American Legion Post 239 holds their Memorial Day Service to honor our fallen veterans. The Service begins following the parade, which is approximately at noon. It is a touching site to see all of the flags marking over 1,300 Veteran’s grave sites in Walnut Grove Cemetery. Please join us for this special service to honor those who have given their lives to ensure freedom for all and experience the true meaning behind Memorial Day.
