Under Ohio Revised Code 517.11  - Care of cemetery

The Board of Township Trustees shall provide for the protection

and preservation of cemeteries under its jurisdiction


The Board of Trustees of Colerain Township has budgeted funds for restoration of 11 of the 29 historic cemeteries located in the township.

2020, Dunlap Station and Foster Cemeteries restoration work was completed.

2021 restoration work on Compton and Huston 


                                                2022 restoration of Schulinger Cemetery                 

While the Township must focus efforts on gravestone restoration and groundskeeping; much work still needs to be completed annually on gravestone cleaning, landscaping and trimming at all of the cemeteries.
