"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."

Erie Street Cemetery - Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio - New story about Cuyahoga Community College Students cleaning up Erie Street Cemetery and taking an active interest in its history

Click on title to link to a wonderful story in today's Cleveland "Plain Dealer" in the "Metro Section" about how students from Cuyahoga Community College are helping to maintain Cleveland's early burial ground, the Erie Street Cemetery. 

This is a "win - win" activity that more students can take a lesson from.
