Description:
My home state one one of the most prolific "stops" on the "Underground Railroad." This location was just one of them in the Columbus OH area. Unfortunately, the location was recently sold and the future of the "Clinton Chapel" is in doubt. Every Easter the local newspaper runs a digital egg hunt. Ten eggs are digitally "hidden" around town and a clue is given daily to each egg's location. Small prizes are awarded after the hunt. Each year my sister and I visit the locations. It has been a WONDERFUL way to learn about and experience the interesting/historical sites in the city where we grew up. This is Riddle #9 from 2014.

Joe's Easter Egg Hunt Riddle #9
RIDDLE 9
A chapel built upon a hill
In 1838 is still
Standing amid newer walls
You lie there when the reaper calls.
It was once a railroad station
And this morning's egg location.
ANSWER: Southwick-Good and Fortkamp Funeral Chapel
former underground railroad station.
