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."

Sharing Recent Photographs taken by Gail Allen of the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio

Sharing recent photographs taken by Gail Allen who visited the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio.  

As you can see, several gravestones, tablet type monuments, and above ground slab-type markers remain in great need of restorative care as they have been for obviously and unfortuantely a number of years.  

Thank you Gail, so much for sharing your photographs!  I know Gail is working with other members of the Greenfield Historical Society to adopt a plan for the betterment of the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield.  

Currently, there are 343 interments listed on "Find A Grave" at the Old Burying Ground.
