The Founders Cemetery
The Founders Cemetery, located on Southgate Parkway, at the top of the Southgate Bridge, is on the corner of Southgate and Turner Avenue. This is the oldest cemetery in Cambridge. It was platted in 1806 by Zaccheus A. Beatty and Joseph Gomber, when they laid out the town of Cambridge, Ohio. As the settlement grew, additional land was acquired in 1833 and again in 1858. This last parcel was called the South Cemetery but was later renamed the Old City Cemetery and is located on the west side of S. 11th
Street. Interments are no longer conducted at Founders Cemetery or the City Cemetery.
The cemetery is accessible off Southgate Parkway. The City Cemetery is accessible off of S. 11th Street, behind the Guthrie Insurance office and is open during daylight hours. The North 10th
Street entrance of Northwood Cemetery is open 24 hours; all other entrances are open between the hours of 7:00 am and 3:00 pm, Monday thru Friday.
