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."

Stroll Hudson, Ohio - Learn Its History & Visit its Cemeteries!

"Did you know that Hudson Owns Five Cemeteries"? that is the title on the official web page for Hudson, in Summit County, Ohio that appears under 'city news and updates' posted on October 14, 2016.

Hudson is not a large Ohio town, so it is quite unique that it would have five cemeteries! 

"Markillie and St. Mary Cemeteries set far back on North Main Street. 
In addition to these popular cemeteries, there is O’Brien Cemetery located in the woods on Hudson Drive, the Olde Hudson Township Burying Ground near Western Reserve Academy, and Draper Cemetery, where Hudson’s first historian is buried." 

Five great reasons to visit Hudson, Ohio!
By the way, did I mention that its downtown district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places? 
Enjoy your visit!
