Green Lawn Abbey is a beautiful mausoleum built in 1927. The grand building was a sought after place of interment from successful entrepreneurs and professionals. After the Green Lawn Abbey declined in the late 20th century, the Green Lawn Abbey Preservation Association was formed to restore the grand mausoleum.
Green Lawn Abbey is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in recognition of its fine Palladio-inspired neoclassical architecture, its high-quality materials, and expert craftsmanship.
The Preservation Association hosts events throughout the year to both celebrate the beauty of the building, as well as to raise funds to continue the restoration and maintenance, which is 100% volunteer driven.

Tales From The Crypt- Escape To The City
Join the famous Scavenger Haunt, Tales from The Crypt- Escape To The City on Saturday, October 30 at 4 pm. Some of the Green Lawn Abbey “residents” are missing… Oh No!
Come to the Abbey for a map. Head out on your own (or with your group) to visit their homes and other favorite “haunts.” If there, they are a chatty bunch. They like to talk about themselves, their lives, and far-away times. You’ll have great fun learning about these fascinating people as you drive through Columbus’ historic neighborhoods. Afterwards, return to the Abbey to enjoy a libation!
This is an outdoor event. Dress for the elements and bring your chairs. Tickets are $20.00. Purchase online.
Stay tuned for more Abbey events in the future!
