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."

Spotlighting - "NAMI - Athens: "The Ridges Cemetery Project"

Click on title to read about "The Ridges Cemetery Project" of Athens, Ohio. 
From the website:

"NAMI Athens is also involved with other groups and organizations in a major effort to restore, beautify and demystify the three mental health graveyards located on the grounds of the old psychiatric hospital complex on the Ridges. Prior to the onset of this project, the graveyards were in poor repair, with many graves abandoned to brush and woods and hundreds of stones uprooted and broken."
