Historians Revisit Forest Cemetery

Two local historians/authors are showing their appreciation for one of the oldest cemeteries in Toledo with the newly released book, Toledo’s Forest Cemetery. The cemetery, founded in 1840, has some of Toledo’s most influential figures and founders buried within the grounds: Benjamin F. Stickney, ship captains, the first fire and police chiefs, and 16 mayors. You can find the book by Becky Visser and Gary Franks at The National Museum of the Great Lakes, the Toledo Police Museum and the Toledo Fire Museum.
