Cemetery Walk

Barb Takach of Wadsworth, OH designed this Cemetery Walk button as part of a series of buttons sold during tour-guided cemetery walks that take place at Woodlawn cemetery in Wadsworth. While there are 36 different buttons, this one is the most popular. It features a photograph of the tombstone of Sylvia Beach. Legend has it that Sylvia, who ran away from her parent's log cabin in 1923 during an episode of delirium and was never found, still walks the woods of a local park each night searching for her parents. The park is located where Sylvia's snowy footprints were last seen almost two centuries ago.
