Adolph Strauch

This walk-a-bout covered some more grounds of the cemetery of fascinating art work. A big attribute goes to Adolph Strauch who make a big contribution to Spring Grove. He was hired in the 1850 to add his art of landscape to Spring Grove. I didn't know that Adolph Strauch made contributions to the foundations of parks in the Cincinnati area. Through out the walk-a-bout we looked at the different area that he may have despised or ones he may loved. For some uncertain reason I loved the fact that although Adolph did away with the chains that separated one family's sections for another, but the stones(which look like chess pieces) still lie in the four corners. They are artistic and appealing to me and I really don't know why. I would love to come back to that section in the spring time to see the weeping willow trees. It sounds like it would be beautiful.

  1. The little corner markers add a touch of whimsy to the place. Actually those trees are weeping cherry trees with the lovely pink blossoms.
