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."

Check out the Greenfield Historical Society Calender for news of upcoming work sessions at the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio. 

This ongoing restoration by an all-volunteer group of folks of the Greenfield Historical Society working at the Old Burying Ground cemetery in Greenfield has made a significant difference since it began in 2014.  The condition of Greenfield's oldest burial ground has improved with every gravemarker in every row where work has been done.
