Locust Grove is the oldest cemetery in Twinsburg and it holds the remains of Moses and Aaron Wilcox, the twins, for whom the town was named, Samuel Bissell, Ethan Alling and many of the folks who founded the town. Since then, every autumn, local actors don costumes and take their places to tell the "Tales of Locust Grove." Some of the actors are even descended from the characters they play. Each year the focus changes just a little. As new actors come into the troupe they find new stories to tell and new ways to tell them. Musicians wander among the storytellers and to add a bygone feeling to the night. The Museum store will be open too.
