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."

Sharing the latest news report for Resthaven Memory Gardens in Avon, Lorain County, Ohio

Sharing a link to the latest TV news report about Resthaven Memory Gardens in Avon, Lorain County that comes from Cleveland TV station, Channel 19 news.  This report is extremely well researched and presented by their reporter, Sara Goldenberg. 
This update is by far the most comprehensive report that I have seen that covers a wide range of issues with several links and photographs included. 
I encourage everyone to read the report and view the video. 
The personal stories are heartbreaking, but it is important to also take note of all of the problematic issues spotlighted; not the least of which is the lack of adequate laws in Ohio to preserve and protect cemeteries that are long overdue to be reviewed and improved.

Resthaven Memory Gardens is an active/registered cemetery.
