The Toledo Mental Health Center Cemetery is located on East Campus Drive, near the intersection with Glendale Avenue, in Toledo, Ohio (Lucas County).
The Toledo Mental Health Center Cemetery (as it is called in the Ohio Cemeteries book published by the Ohio Genealogical Society) is the final resting place for many patients who passed away at the Toledo State Hospital. This cemetery is the more recent of two used by the hospital; there are 1,994 patients buried in the two cemeteries. You can see photos from the other cemetery by clicking here. The graves are marked with small concrete blocks that contain only a patient number.
The Toledo State Hospital cemeteries were forgotten and neglected for years. However, in 2005, a wonderful group of people formed the Toledo State Hospital Cemetery Reclamation Committee (TSHCRC). They have been working along with the University of Toledo, who owns both properties, to restore the cemeteries. For more information, please visit the The Toledo State Hospital Cemetery Reclamation Project website.
