October - Radicals & Reformers History Walk every Saturday
Radicals and Reformers History Walk. Every Saturday at 11:00 a.m. in October. This guided tour through Westwood Cemetery promises a pleasing balance of scenic landmarks and stories of some of the many spirited men and women of Oberlin who simply refused the status quo. Find out which resident was remembered as "gentle, soft-spoken, tolerant and yet nobody's fool." Visit the headstone of the man who escaped from slavery (twice!) and later served on the Oberlin village council.
Meet near the entrance of the cemetery to begin this historic journey. Guided History Walks are offered each Saturday at 11:00 a.m. from June through October. Tickets must be purchased through the website calendar or at the Monroe House's Museum Store; tickets are not available at the starting point of the tour. $6 per adult, with $1 discount for OHC members and for college/university students with a current ID; free for children less than 18 years (most likely to be enjoyed by children 9 years of age and up). Each walk is approximately 60-75 minutes. History walks may be cancelled and fees refunded if fewer than 5 people pre-register or if it is raining at the tour start time.
