2014 Historic Linwood Foundation Ramble

Linwood Through the Lens:
The 2014 Linwood Cemetery Ramble

The title of the 18th annual Historic Linwood Foundation Fall Ramble is “Linwood Through the Lens.” Scheduled for Thursday, October 23, the Ramble will offer sunset cemetery tours with a focus on photography. After the tours, guests are invited to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres under a sprawling oak in the Old Section of the cemetery.
“Linwood Through the Lens,” will feature artistic photographs of the cemetery along with stops at the graves of some noted Columbus photographers, including Louis Pacetty, Ernest Jungerman, Constantine De George, Tiffany Moore and others.
Some of the tour stops will be at graves that are featured in a new photography book, Linwood Through the Lens, which will make its premier at the Ramble. From January 1 through December 31, 2013, as part of photography competition, local photographers swarmed the cemetery snapping photos of tombstones, fences, urns, statuary and the like. Over 400 photos were submitted to a juried competition, with 150 being selected and included in the publication of a coffee table style book. The book will be available for purchase at the Ramble. Please note also that on October 30th, there will be an exhibit of the published photos at the Rankin in downtown Columbus.
Ramble tours will start every 15 minutes beginning at 5:00 p.m., and will continue till approximately 6:30 p.m. or until all guests have taken the tour. Visitors with special needs are asked to come to the 5:00 p.m. tour, when golf carts will be available. Following the tours, ramblers will enjoy a bounty of delicious hors d’oeuvres (prepared by local caterer Jodi Ressmeyer), along with a well-stocked bar.
Advance tickets are $25.00 for Historic Linwood Foundation members and $30.00 for non-members. Day-of-event tickets are $30.00 for members and $35.00 for non-members. Student tickets (under 21) are $12.00.
On the night of the Ramble, guests are asked to enter through the chapel gate on Linwood Boulevard (one nearest 10th Avenue). Parking will be inside the cemetery. Gates open at 4:15 p.m.; police officers will provide parking directions.
