Milford Cemetery

Milford IOOF Cemetery
Carriage Way-Riverside Park II, Miami Township, Milford
GPS Coordinate (fenced area) 
N 39 10.767, W 084 17.448.    Elev: 587, Accuracy 18ft.

You may take St. Rt. 28 or St. Rt. 50 into the City of Milford.  As you enter the intersection of St. Rt. 28 and St. Rt. 
50 continue on Main Street-Rt. 50.  You will pass St. Andrews Catholic Church. As you descend down a small hill 
entering Old Milford you will turn right on High Street.  This will dead end into Carriage Way which is not a road, 
just a walking path.  I parked at the Lila Chateau Apartments to the right and walked over to the park. Access:  see below.

Pictures and additional inscriptions taken by Pamela Smith, CCGS member, and Cathy Kemplin, volunteer on 
November 6, 2006.  Please notice the fenced area of the cemetery.  This is not actually the cemetery.  There may 
have been a few burials located within this fence but the majority of the burials are on a steep hill, in the woods, 
along the Little Miami River and within the park grounds.  As stones are found they are carried to the fenced area 
and placed anywhere. There are a lot of monument bases still in the woods and I am sure buried stones - somewhere.  
This would be a tremendous task for me and I may attempt to do in the future.  Most monuments have been vandalized 
and broke, lost in pieces throughout the park located around the play area.  We found bases located in the ground 
where the children play.  You can imagine what the neighbors were thinking as we were digging up the childrens 
playground.  If you plan to visit please walk the park grounds and then go into the woods. This cemetery has been 
neglected and the site misused as a playground.
