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."

Upcoming! Cemetery Tours — Symbolism at Mound: Hidden in Plain Sight - Marietta, Ohio - July 22, 2017 - 10:00a.m. to 11:30a.m.

A cemetery tour is a great way to become acquainted with a cemetery!  

Taking a stroll with a cemetery tour guide who introduces us to both the notable and little known dearly departed ones at their final resting places provides an insight into their lives and how they impacted the events during times they lived in.  Their contributions shaped a world that we might not otherwise come to know and appreciate.

Here is an opportunity to tour one of Ohio's most historic cemeteries - the Mound Cemetery in picturesque Marietta.
