Erie Street Cemetery
Is Cleveland’s oldest existing cemetery. When the last was first acquired by the Village of
Cleveland in 1826, it was considered far enough form the center of population that it wouldn’t
get in the way of new construction. Occupants of the more centrally-located Ontario Street
Cemetery were exhumed and reburied here. Today, downtown Cleveland towers all this
spacious, shadypiece of land; the city has grown and expanded over the decades, but he
graveyard has remained essentially unchanged for more than 175 years. CLICK HERE FOR

Terra Vista Cemetery
