You can learn a lot about local history in a cemetery!
In both 2015 and 2016, the Brecksville Historical Association conducted a Cemetery Walk at the Brecksville-Highland Drive Cemetery.
During the walk, about two dozen gravesites of people who were responsible for Brecksville's founding and growth, from its pioneer beginnings to its growth into a City, were visited.
The Walk included pioneers, farmers, business owners, politicians, and veterans.
Tour guides provided historical details at each stop as well as gravestone symbolism and interesting epitaphs. Each tour participant received a booklet that laid out both the path and a historical hunt to answer questions about the cemetery and Brecksville's history.
Although there are no current plans to do the Walk again, you can do it on your own!
