The Township has two cemetery locations. The Stickney Cemetery, with burials from the 1800’s and early 1900’s, is located on State Route 86. This cemetery is closed to additional burials. The Concord Cemetery, which was established in the 1930’s, is located on State Route 608 and has four sections, two of which are sold out. The fourth section of the Concord Cemetery was dedicated in 2004.
Concord Township Cemetery:
Wreaths Across America (WWA)
The cemetery will continue the mission to Remember, Honor and Teach. This year’s wreath laying ceremony will be done by Township staff due to COVID-19. Look for a video on December 19th.
Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, the mission to Remember and Honor those who served and their families along with Teaching the next generation about the value of freedom, is carried in cemeteries across the nation. In 2019 approximately 2.2 million veteran wreaths were placed at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 2,158 participating locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.
Please help us to Remember, Honor and Teach by sponsoring a $15.00 wreath(s) for our veterans in our cemeteries. Go to www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/OH0164 or click the link below:
