Ghost Tours at Walnut Grove Cemetery

  • Walnut Grove Cemetery 5561 Milton Avenue Worthington, OH, 43085 United States (map)

Join the Worthington Historical Society under the moon for a tour at Walnut Grove Cemetery.  Worthington residents from two centuries for whom Walnut Grove is the final resting place will be out and about after dark to share stories.


This year’s tour will feature a host of actors from the Columbus community who will skillfully bring residents of Worthington to life.  The group is being led by Lyndsi Hersch, who has participated in the Society’s Ghost Tours for the past two years. She also has directed a group who presented historic dances at last year’s Harvest Festival at the Orange Johnson House.  We are thrilled to have this group participating this season.


Walking shoes and flashlights are recommended.  The tour will take place rain or shine (severe weather excepted), so bring an umbrella if rain is in the forecast! In the event of severe weather, cancellation will be posted on our website by 6 pm, and the tour will be rescheduled for Saturday, October 21st at 7:30 pm. The tour is designed for guests 13 and older.  Tickets are non-refundable.  Tickets may be purchased for $15.00 at Fritzy Jacobs or The Shop at the Old Rectory. (Cash or Check only)
