Radicals and Reformers History Walk. This 75-minute walk through Westwood Cemetery promises a pleasing balance of scenic landmarks and stories of 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.
