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."

Monroe Street Cemetery - Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Click on title to read a great story about the Monroe Street Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio (featured on the website "Cleveland.com").  The story mentions that the first burial at Monroe Street Cemetery was 1818 and the most recent burial was 2006.  This means it can be considered an 'active' cemetery. 
Hopefully, a bright future will be on the horizon for Monroe Street Cemetery to receive the improvements it needs so people can once again visit and walk through its grounds.
