History

Union Cemetery Association was established as a not for profit organization in 1854. Prior to then, residents of Steubenville were served by a number of small cemeteries that were getting locked out of expansion due to the City's rapidly growing population.

The cemetery was founded on land originally owned by William Huscroft, west of the city.

The original tract of forty-eight acres was increased by additional purchases until 1877 with a total of one hundred forty-three acres. In 1905 the Thompson farm was purchased which added eighty acres of ground to the cemetery. On August 4, 1930 a tract of ninety-nine acres was sold to the city for a park, leaving one hundred twenty-one acres for cemetery purposes. In 1967 twenty-four acres to the cemetery was added. Today the cemetery consists of one hundred ninety-nine acres.
