The Unmarked Graves
Photos of the 7th Annual Veteran's Memorial Program on Saturday, May 17, 2014, in the former Toledo State Hospital Cemetery behind Bowsher High School in South Toledo. Now the Northwest Ohio Psychiatric Hospital, the former State Hospital buried 906 people in the cemetery between 1888 and 1922. Many of the graves are unmarked or sunken, with only 206 identified. Put on by the Toledo State Hospital Cemetery Reclamation Project, the event included local military speakers, guest speaker Dr. Mychail Scheramic, CEO of the Northwest Ohio Psychiatric Hospital, and the formal presentation of a bench and memorial by Eagle Scout Ian Vogt, 17.
