Radicals & Reformers: Westwood Cemetery History Walk
History Walk begins at the front of Westwood Cemetery (Morgan St.).

This guided tour promises a pleasing balance of Westwood's 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.

This tour lasts approximately 75 minutes and covers approximately 1 walking mile. Please note there are no restrooms or facilities located at the cemetery.
