Bob Dyer: Hope waning for historic cemetery - Local - Ohio

This newspaper story is about Mount Hope Cemetery in South Akron, Summit County, Ohio.  

One setback after another has befallen Mount Hope thwarting its chances and hope for a turnaround toward a brighter future.  It desperately needs routine maintenance to 'play catch up' with its neglected and largely overgrown grounds to return it to the well kept cemetery it once was. 
There are 1,989 interments listed for Mount Hope Cemetery on "Find A Grave" with six outstanding gravestone photograph requests. It is 51% photographed at the present time.
