Green Lawn Cemetery was established in 1848, and it is still active. There are several famous, well known people from Columbus buried here. You'll recognize a lot of graves that belong to people that have streets named after them, such as Sullivant, etc.

There are also several supposedly haunted graves and mausoleums at Green Lawn Cemetery. I took a picture of the Hayden Mausoleum and the Gay Mausoleum, they are two of the well known haunted graves. They are pictured above.

Since this cemetery is so big it's quite easy to get lost...I ended up spending two hours when I went the first time. I could have easily spent more time there, but after two hours I saw the exit and didn't want to lose it again!
