Hopewell Methodist Episcopal Cemetery is located right beside the Hopewell Methodist church on Clearcreek Rd in Lancaster, Ohio. It is just east of Hopewell Church Road in Madison Township.

This cemetery is still in use, but there are a lot of older gravestones as well. Two of the most interesting gravestones (in my opinion of course!) were the ones with the hand carved epitaphs. Both belonged to people who died during the Great Depression of the 1930's, so I wonder if they carved the epitaphs by hand because that's all they could afford? It's very common to see handcarved epitaphs on gravestones from that time period.
