The Rough Draft Diaries with Haley Taylor - 7-10-19 515

The weather has been nice to The Rough Draft Diaries so we're heading outside yet again for this week's episode. We're at Woodlawn Cemetery and Arboretum. Founded in 1876, Woodlawn Cemetery is a classic example of the type of rural cemetery that urban planners began to favor in the mid-1800s. Later, in 1998, Woodlawn Cemetery was recognized as a National Historic Site. And even later than that, just a few years ago, Woodlawn was given an official rating as an Arboretum. Hear all about it on this week's episode of The RDD.
