W.T. Baster Graveyard Site

(Inactive, unmarked)

Reported in 1979 to the Ohio Archaeological Inventory by Cleveland Museum of Natural History, this private cemetery is about 25 by 25 meters. It is located 580 meters east of Dayton Road and 540 meters south of South Ridge Road near the Palomino development area, on the property which belonged to the W.T. Baster family for 150 years. It was owned by William Murray at time of reporting.

The form states, “The area of the site is the old family graveyard for the Baster family. There are no gravestones on the graves but surface examination of the area shows rectangular depressions on the ground. No testing will be performed on this site due to the nature of its contents and the will of Mr. Baster.”

This is on private property with no public access.
