Columbus Outdoor Pursuits is pleased to offer historical guided bicycle tours of Green Lawn Abbey and Cemetery. The tours will be narrated by naturalist and historian Randy Rogers, Executive Director of Green Lawn Cemetery Association. The tours are designed for the casual cyclist who wants to explore and learn more about these iconic Columbus landmarks. The informative tours begin at Green Lawn Abbey, which opened in 1929, fell into disrepair, and is now being gradually restored. The Abbey is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The tour then proceeds through Green Lawn Cemetery--one of the oldest and largest cemeteries in Ohio. Green Lawn Cemetery represents a vast treasure, encompassing more than 200 years of history and is the resting place of many prominent Columbus residents, including the families of four U.S. Presidents. The tour will stop at several locations for short, informative talks about notable graves, monuments, and family mausoleums. The cemetery is also home to 150 species of trees and several state champion trees, as well as a recognized bird sanctuary.
