"A cemetery may be considered as abandoned when all or practically all of the bodies have been removed therefrom and 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."

Awaiting Easter at All Saints Cemetery in Northfield, Summit County, Ohio

Sharing some photographs of portions of Section 8 and a longer shot view of the Babyland area set aside at All Saints Cemetery in Northfield, Summit County, Ohio. 

There were many unique and decorative Easter displays in place at most gravesites that were interesting to see and photograph.  This cemetery is comprised of primarily flat in-ground markers.
