First City Cemetery
in American Legion Memorial Park

"What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others."

Located in American Legion Memorial Park on the east side of Winchester Street just south of the former Erie Railroad, in Decatur, Washington Township.
According to the DAR reading: "It is believed that a list of all grave stones was published in the Decatur Daily Democrat at the time the stones were removed from the graves and piled in a heap in the southeast corner of the park where they were placed after World War I when the cemetery was made into a park. This lists only those still in Memorial Park as of September 9, 1958."
