As the sun sets before 8 PM in September, these Historic Tours will be given by lantern light. A great alternative if you couldn’t get a spot in our History, Mystery, Mayhem and Murder Tours.

Founded in 1841, Woodland is one of the oldest rural cemeteries in the United States. Visit the final resting place of the Wright Brothers, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Erma Bombeck, James Ritty, the Stanley Family, the Mead Family, George Newcom and many other famous and infamous Daytonians.

All tours require a reservation and there is a suggested $10 donation. All donations support the Woodland Arboretum Foundation which focuses on the restoration, preservation, horticultural and educational projects needed to keep Woodland a cultural resource for Dayton and Ohio.
