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."

Sheep Pen Cemetery in the Winter -- Photographs from Scott Andersen

I have never seen Sheep Pen Cemetery during the Winter, so these photographs below are quite special to me.

 I'm pleased to share these (unretouched) photographs that I just received from Scott Andersen who recently visited Sheep Pen Cemetery.  

Sheep Pen sits silent yet serene under this light dusting of snow. As it awaits the first warm day of Spring, we can ponder how the seasons may change but our respect for those buried on hallowed grounds, like Sheep Pen, abides.  

Thank you Scott!!!
