Oakland Cemetery now Features a Walking Tour Brochure

The website of Oakland Cemetery in Sandusky, Ohio now features a self-guided walking tour. The brochure is available online here.

Read this brochure to learn about the early leaders of Sandusky, artists, abolitionists, a talented photographer, and the many beautiful monuments at Oakland Cemetery.

This poignant passage from the April 20, 1850 Sandusky Clarion, which also appears at Oakland Cemetery's website reads:
The thought of being buried in so lovely a spot, though it takes away half the fear of death, makes one doubly thankful that he escaped the dreadful scourge of last season, and can hereafter repose in a place unsurpassed for beauty, where ‘twould seem sweet to lie forever.
