Bellefontaine is filled with remarkable imagery and monumentation, much of which reveals clues about lives and times of the people they honor.  Led by Master Guide Tom Allen, this 2-hour walking tour will focus on the unique sculptures and mysterious messages found in the iconography of Bellefontaine Cemetery’s historic markers and monuments.
