Roll up your sleeves and help with spring clean-up day at Green Lawn Abbey Saturday, May 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Columbus Landmarks Foundation joins forces with Green Lawn Abbey Preservation Association for their annual spring clean-up. Green Lawn Abbey, located at 700 Greenlawn Ave., is a grand structure built in 1927 by the Columbus Mausoleum Company. It was the finest and largest in the area with room for 600 interments. Built to last an eternity with 1½“ thick granite walls, marble interior and an imported tile roof, the Abbey was built to inspire awe. Marble faux-fireplaces, stained glass windows and various religious statues adorn this beautiful final resting place of many notable figures in Ohio and local history. Workday assignments will include planting, mulching, weeding and general lawn clean-up, as well as sweeping, dusting, polishing the interior. Broken windows in the Abbey lead to a lot of dust & soot. Bring rakes, garden tools, shop vacs, brooms, dust pans, etc. This is a great opportunity to help preserve an important landmark.
