The High Street Cemetery is located at the intersection of High Street and North Washington Street in Circleville, Ohio (Circleville Township, Pickaway County). The coordinates are 39° 36' 10.58" N, 82° 56' 22.32" W.

The High Street Cemetery was established in 1831. It is no longer active. The cemetery is filled with many interesting, old gravestones. However, all of those old gravestones have been removed from their original locations, and are lined up flat on the ground at the back.

I first heard about this cemetery from Julie H., a website visitor:

There were a lot of old and broken headstones found in the back tree line behind the cemetery by volunteers who were clearing the area. After talking with an older resident of the community years ago, all the headstones were plowed over and pushed back. Then only the soldiers headstones were put back, but all the other graves are left unmarked.
