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."

Despite the Weather Being "Iffy" the July 23 2017 Work Session at the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield was a Success!

Sharing a link to the Greenfield Historical Society's website, and specifically its page for descriptions and photos pertaining to its latest work session at the Village's pioneer cemetery known as its "Old Burying Ground" that is adjacent to the Traveller's Rest.

As with these work sessions since they began in 2014, many gravestones were cleaned, some repaired, and others completely reset -- all by trained volunteers!
