Postle Cemetery is located within a new condo complex west of Norton Road and south of Sullivant Avenue in Columbus, Ohio (Prairie Township, Franklin County). The coordinates are 39° 56' 32.96" N, 83° 8' 37.51" W.

Postle Cemetery was established in 1829, and it is no longer active. At one time the land was going to be used for a shopping center, and it was rumored that the stones had been moved. However, the family was able to stop the cemetery from being destroyed, and now a condo complex is being built around it. Postle Cemetery is in horrible shape; all the gravestones have been damaged, mostly from vandalism. When I visited in December 2006, the grass was extremely high, and beer cans and bottles were scattered amongst the gravestones pieces.
