CincinnatiSpringGrove13

The second informal Chapter Breakfast was held on August 10th, 9:00 am at the Crowne Plaza, Blue Ash. Most of the seventeen Compatriot attendees subsequently retired to Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum at 10:45.

The resident Docent, Heather Amos, who handles Revolutionary War soldier’s graves, took us on an extensive walking tour.

Spring Grove encompasses 733 acres, of which 400 acres are currently landscaped and maintained. Its grounds include 12 ponds, many fine tombstones and memorials, and various examples of Gothic Revival architecture. It is the second largest cemetery in the United States and is recognized as a U.S. National Historic Landmark.
