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."

Spotlighting the Old Burying Ground's May 27th, 2017 Work Session - Greenfield, Ohio

Sharing this link from the Greenfield Historical Society in Greenfield (Highland County) Ohio.

 Scott Andersen and his wife Venus, Jacquelyn Doles, Patsy Smith, John King, and Diane Zimmerman were the volunteers who participated in this first more major work session of 2017 at the Village of Greenfield's Old Burying Ground on May 27, 2017.

I'm sure you will enjoy viewing the before and after photographs that tell the story of their progress as it is being made at this historic cemetery.

Please also check out previous work sessions found in the "Past Events" Section (Under the category of "A Look Back") that began in 2014.

This all volunteer group, many of whom are long time stalwarts who have given of their time and talents as they have in so many various capacities, is making a huge difference and bringing this once forlorn looking cemetery back to life!
