Omar Cemetery is located on the west side of OH-4 outside Attica, Ohio (Reed Township, Seneca County). The coordinates are 41° 7' 8" N, 82° 51' 46.05" W.

Omar Cemetery sits beside the old church, which was a safe haven for fugitive slaves escaping via the Underground Railroad. The cemetery is still active. There are many gravestones, including an unusually high number of white bronze monuments. These monuments are made of zinc, and were sold by salesmen. There must have been a very good salesman in this area! In addition to all of the white bronze, there are also many marble and sandstone monuments with interesting carvings. The cemetery is very well maintained.
