Shadows on the Hillside – Tombstone Tales
The Columbus Area Historical Society & Museum, in cooperation with the Columbus Hillside Cemetery Association, will be sponsoring a cemetery tour on Halloween Day, Sunday, October 31, 2021 at the Columbus Hillside Cemetery on Lewis Street in Columbus.
Twelve notable Columbus pioneers will step out of the shadows on the hillside to share their stories with visitors. Local community and CAHS members, none of whom are professional actors, have volunteered to bring these people to life for one day – Halloween! Period costumes will help take visitors back in time while discovering how each character was important to the foundation of Columbus.
This walking tour lasts approximately 2 hours and tickets will be sold in advance to schedule a tour time. Tickets will also be available at the gate, but on a first-come-first-serve basis.
