Family Day at the Orange Johnson House: Grave Rubbings

  • Orange Johnson House 956 High Street Worthington, OH, 43085 United States (map)


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!
