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!
