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."

Time Travelling -- Celebrating the 200th Anniversary of Travellers Rest in Greenfield - Saturday, October 6, 2012 - 10:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.

Click on title to link to a great newspaper story of September 25, 2012 in the "Times-Gazette" (Timesgazette.com) written by Jeff Gilliland detailing the activities of Greenfield's Sixth Annual History Day.   

A main feature of the celebration will be Earlene Scott who will portray Noble Crawford's wife, Mary Stuart Crawford.  Noble Crawford constructed Travellers Rest in 1812. 

So, if you live in the Greenfield area (Highland County, Ohio) or are traveling near there on October 6, please stop by the historical society's complex of historical buildings on the east edge of Greenfield, near the State Route 28 bridge.

The Greenfield Historical Society's website is another wonderful resource for learning more about the town's local history and will help you keep up with all of its upcoming events!
