Exploring Almost Forgotten Gravesites in the Great State of 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 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."

Mount Tabor Church and Cemetery - Salem Township, Champaign County, Ohio - Sunday, September 27, 2009 - 2p.m. to 4p.m.

Per the "Urbana Daily Citizen" newspaper, on page B-8 of September 23, 2009, a public event will be held at the Mount Tabor Church in Salem Township, Champaign County, Ohio (located south of SR 507 on the east side of SR 245) from 2:00p.m. to 4:00p.m. on Sunday, September 27, 2009 to celebrate the restoration efforts completed at the beautiful red brick Mount Tabor Church. 

An afternoon of "music and fellowship" along with speakers and refreshments will be offered by the Champaign County Preservation Alliance. 

Adjacent to Mount Tabor Church is the Mount Tabor Cemetery. 

Click on title to link to Mount Tabor Cemetery on "Findagrave.com" which currently lists 265 burials.  

The website of "graveaddiction.com" also contains interesting information about Mount Tabor Cemetery including photographs of the Ohio Historical Society Marker located on the property, and several "zinc gravestones," which I also refer to as being "white bronze" markers.

The Mount Tabor Church and Cemetery are fascinating sites to visit and this coming Sunday would be an ideal time to see both.
