We depart on June 20 at 8:15 to The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati. The museum not only documents the struggle of Americas slaves for freedom, but other past and ongoing fights against oppression. After touring, we will enjoy a box lunch at the museum. Following lunch, we will travel by bus to Washington Park. Once a cemetery, the park was acquired by the city in 1858. We will have a docent-led tour to hear the remarkable history of this park. Walkways throughout make this a walker and wheelchair-friendly park. The park sits on the edge of the Over-the-Rhine area and its makeover is considered the kickstarter for developments in that area.
On our way home we will stop at Natorp’s Nursery in Mason. The Natorp family has run this nursery in Mason for over 100 years. There are several members of the family’s fourth generation running this landscaping and nursery business that is known for its friendly helpfulness and huge selection of plant material. This is a fundraiser program run by the Wegerzyn Gardens Foundation. For more information or to sign-up visit their website or call Donna at (937) 233-3481.
