Spotlighting the Brecksville Cemetery in Brecksville, Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Below are some photographs taken during the September 23, 2018 tour of the Brecksville Cemetery 

The tour was almost two hours and it was quite well presented with the theme of “Headstones, Heroes, History, and Horticulture” — so the attendees, who also received a brochure about the cemetery, were treated to a guided study of these elements of this historic Northeast Ohio cemetery.
