"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."

Sharing a Quiet Winter Scene at the Greenfield Cemetery in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio

Thanking Scott and Venus Andersen for sharing their photograph taken today of a portion of the Greenfield Cemetery in Greenfield, Ohio. 

We see the windswept snow hugging the bases of the taller monuments.  A white landscape of peace and quiet prevails; reflected in a glint of sun spotlighting the stones from a distance.
