Many dangers face our cemeteries; such as weathering, commercial development, neglect, abandonment, vandalism and theft. The Ohio Cemetery Preservation Society (OCPS) has been formed as a response to the public's increasing awareness and appreciation of our historic cemeteries and the need to protect them.
In addition to our work in preservation, members will enjoy field trips,
participating in a variety of ongoing projects, guided tours and
helping with the many functions that OCPS will sponsor.
