'Undead' lead tours through Youngstown's famous dead today

The dead at Oak Hill Cemetery had plenty of company today — from the undead.

As part of Zombie Crawl festivities downtown, the Mahoning Valley Historical Society offered a tour of the cemetery, where several of the city’s famous families are buried, and the tour guides got into the zombie theme as well.

In fact, MVHS Executive Director William Lawson had the ripped clothes and disheveled face of someone who would be at home on the set of the television show “The Walking Dead.” For today, the title on his nametag read “Executive Zombie.”

Lawson and other zombie volunteers led several groups on a walk over the hilly grounds of the cemetery, to the graves of perhaps the most infamous person to be buried there, as well as the Tod who was Ohio governor, the namesake of The Rayen School, and the Wick who died in the sinking of the Titanic.
