Exploring almost forgotten gravesites in Ohio

Dedicated to cemetery preservation in the great state of Ohio

"A cemetery may be considered as abandoned when all or practically all of the bodies have been Removed therefromand no bodies have been buried therein for a great many years, and the cemetery has been so long neglected as entirely to lose its identity as such, and is no longer known, recognized and respected by the public as a cemetery. 1953 OAG 2978."

Modern Monuments & Merry Christmas at Calvary Cemetery, Lorain, Ohio

Sharing photos taken November 29, 2015 at Calvary Cemetery in Lorain, Ohio.  

The photo of the gravesite decorated for Christmas with the big flowery wreath, an angel wreath, and stand up metal angel and tree was the most unique one I saw during my visit.  

The lack of snow somewhat detracts from the spirit of a traditional winter holiday scene, but the thoughtful decorations are making up for it!   
The remaining photographs are of newer larger granite monuments.  Each has its own individuality.
