Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum’s “History in Bloom”
What is “History in Bloom” you ask? Once a year in the spring, Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum (2nd largest cemetery in US) has a special event where docent guides dress up as some of the more famous “residents” of their historic 150 yr. old cemetery. Carriage rides are offered and it is all free plus our auto route through the hilly and winding roads of colorful flowering trees is not to be missed and they only do it on this day! Spring Grove is one of the most beautiful cemeteries/arboretums you will ever visit!
