October 11, 12, 13 (Various times) Every Good Story has a Plot

Enjoy the changing colors of the season in a picturesque, historic setting with this new tour created by Oberlin Heritage Center staff and volunteers. The non-scary, one-hour guided stroll through Westwood Cemetery (429 Morgan Street) features early Oberlin business owners and tradespeople of days-gone-by as portrayed by costumed interpreters. 

Participants will be introduced to innkeeper and dry goods store owner Marx Straus (aka volunteer Dennis Cook), tea shop proprietor Rachel Brightman Rawdon (Judy Cook), milliner Marie de France (Camille Hamlin Allen), insurance company owner Helen Gorske Sperry (portrayed by her niece Pat Gorske Price) and formerly enslaved 19th century civil rights advocate and entrepreneur Henry Lee (Joseph Peek).  Reservations are required in advance; tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children ($8 adults/$4 children for OHC members).  This is a family-friendly event and most likely enjoyed by ages 7 and up.  If it is raining at tour start time, fee will be refunded or you may transfer your reservation to another available date.

Reservations are needed in advance. Tour times:
