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."

Looking Ahead to Ohio's Statehood Day - February 27, 2019 - 9:00AM to 1:30PM

Mark your calendars for Ohio Statehood Day on Wednesday, February 27, 2019!

"Weds., Feb. 27, 2019 • Ohio Statehouse, Columbus

Join fellow history lovers at the Ohio Statehouse to commemorate Ohio's birthday—and to advocate for Ohio History.

In commemoration of Ohio’s founding, we and our partners invite you to join a broad coalition of history advocates for our annual Statehood Day event. 

The state’s birthday serves as an appropriate time each year for history advocates to come together to help showcase the importance of Ohio’s history and how history, historic preservation and the organizations that help provide access to Ohio’s rich history benefit the Buckeye State. Statehood Day is a celebration of Ohio and its history, as well as a legislative advocacy event!"
