Things are going to get creepy in Columbus, this weekend.

Make plans to attend Tales from the Crypt at the Green Lawn Abbey (700 Greenlawn Ave Columbus) this Friday Oct 26 at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and Saturday Oct 27 at 7:30 p.m.

Some of the “residents” will be coming to meet you Halloween weekend. Will you be there?  Join Green Lawn Abbey for the Abbey’s signature event when they turn the lights down low, light the candles and introduce you to some very interesting people.

This year visitors will include: Howard Thurston, the great magician; Alexander Gaal, proprietor of the Foreign Grocery; Ina McClure, doctor’s wife and temperance worker; Sylvia Derby, a Ziegfeld Follies dancer; Isaac Collins, founder of Anchor Hocking Glass; and Herbert Penney, J.C. Penney’s brother and associate

Dress for the weather in comfortable shoes.  Stairs are required.  Come early to learn a little Abbey history and enjoy a light snack.

Tickets are just $22 and can be purchased online at

Don’t miss this educational and bone-chilling event!
