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."

"History lives at Mansfield Cemetery"

"Tour a colorful way to visit the past"

by Todd Hill of the "Mansfield News Journal"

 Excerpted from story:

"The tour, scheduled for 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday at the cemetery at 389 Altamont Ave., is part of a series of events this year commemorating the bicentennial of the founding of Richland County in 1813."

"Admission to the event is free, no reservations are needed and parking will be outside the cemetery. No restroom facilities will be available."
