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."

Elmwood Cemetery in Lorain, Ohio didn't disappoint despite the lack of surrounding colorful Fall foliage

Sharing a few photos taken at the City of Lorain's Elmwood Cemetery during my most recent trip on October 20, 2019.  Indeed it is a special cemetery to me because my parents, grandparents, and an uncle and aunt are buried at Elmwood Cemetery.  
I had also hoped to share scenes of brilliant reds and golds of this year's Fall foliage in the cemetery's background, but that was not to be. 
All was not lost, though, because the cemetery's well cared for appearance was evident everywhere. Looking down the long rows of headstones I could see that the grass was at an acceptable height. The lack of recent rain, however, had caused some browning but an upcoming rainstorm should remedy that small issue.
So, go out and enjoy the array of Fall colors that are bursting forth at Ohio's cemeteries! 
The multi-hued leaves create a canopy of vibrant solid colors that sadly is too short-lived. The Wintery winds with their drifts of icy white will arrive soon enough -- and stay too long.
