To reach this cemetery from I-75, junction 203-B, take Detroit Avenue south to Arlington Ave (about 4 miles) From the junction of South Detroit Avenue and Arlington Avenue head west on Arlington Avenue. Cemetery is roughly 1500 feet on the right, access via Bowsher High School entrance.
This cemetery was used from opening of the Toledo Asylum for the Insane in 1888 (name later changed to Toledo State Hospital) until it reached capacity in 1924. After that date burials were made in the new state hospital cemetery.
All of the cemetery lands were owned by the state of Ohio until the 1960s when it was sold to Medical College of Ohio and then to University of Toledo. It is situated on the North side of Arlington Avenue, of Bowsher High School. The cemetery is mowed regularly by University of Toledo Grounds department.
This transcription is in part from the Toledo State Hospital burial log at the state library plus additional research to find dates. Many have no birth and death dates. The stones have only numbers on them. Much research has been done to present as accurate a record as possible. All work was done by those working on the Toledo State Hospital Cemetery Reclamation Project.
File contains all the known burials in this cemetery. Some markers have yet to be uncovered. Transcription compiled Oct 15, 2010 from 2007 Ohio Department of Mental Health cemetery transcription.
