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.
PLEASE BECOME A MEMBER NOW
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.
