Join South Park’s neighborhood historian, Betsy Wilson, for another chapter in the history of the original residents of South Park as we visit their resting places in Woodland Cemetary and Arboretum. Meet at Woodland’s front gate on Monday, May 30th at 10am. Traditionally, neighbors bring flowers from their gardens in remembrance of our “ancestors” so vases and water are provided if you are so inclined. Expect to spend 90 minutes in a pleasant walk through Woodland’s shady and steep hills.
This year, Betsy took her cue from some of the homes on this spring’s Historic South Park Home Tour. Her research will focus on the working class families who built the homes or lived in them, and shed some light on the lives of laborers who plied their trades in Dayton in the early 1900s.

You’ll have to join the Walk to find out more! Wear your comfy shoes.
While this date was postponed due to weather, please check back for the rescheduled date! Thank you. *** On May 24th, the Dayton Police will hold a night walk in Historic South Park. Everyone is invited to meet at 8:30 PM in the Hope Lutheran Church parking lot (500 Hickory). From there, we will complete [...]
