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 My Photographs of the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio

I am quite pleased to share my photographs taken on September 16, 2016 of portions of some sections of the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Ohio. 

The Greenfield Historical Society has been holding hands-on restoration sessions at the Old Burying Ground, which is adjacent to the Travellers Rest, since 2014. 

You can follow the progress of the all-volunteer group who are transforming this early Ohio cemetery on the website of the Greenfield Historical Society.
