A presentation on the lost cemeteries of Cuyahoga County co-sponsored by the Strongsville Historical Society and the Friends of Strongsville Branch Library.

The dead do not always rest in peace. Occasionally, they wind up in the backyard. As towns grew in Cuyahoga County during the late 1800s, many of its cemeteries were relocated to make room for urban sprawl. But not all of these graves made the journey.

Local author William G. Krejci tracked down more than 50 displaced cemeteries throughout the Greater Cleveland area. Join us to discover the Revolutionary War veterans, famous scientists and illustrious dignitaries found beneath gas stations and grocery stores in this eerie history of Cuyahoga County’s forgotten dead. This program will share many of these incredible stories, but will also focus on those closer to Strongsville, including the long-forgotten Strongsville Baptist Church Burying Ground.

Program presented by the Strongsville Historical Society in partnership with the Strongsville Branch Library.

Registration is requested.

Biography: William G. Krejci was born in Cleveland in 1975 and raised in the neighboring suburb of Avon Lake. With an interest in local history, he spends much of his time investigating urban legends and has served as the resident historian at Cleveland's famed Franklin Castle. He is the author of Buried Beneath Cleveland: Lost Cemeteries of Cuyahoga CountyHaunted Put-in-BayGhosts and Legends of Northern OhioLost Put-in-BayLost Ghost Stories of Cleveland (set for release in September 2023) and co-author of Haunted Franklin Castle. He is also the author of the Jack Sullivan Mysteries and has been a guest speaker at many historical societies, libraries, bookstores, public venues and civic groups. He’s appeared as a guest on multiple paranormal-based television programs and has been featured on many local podcasts, television and radio programs. On weekends, he hosts ghost walks in Cleveland and in his free time, sings and plays guitar in an Irish band.
