The Wickliffe Cemetery, established circa 1808, is located on one acre of land at 28855 Euclid Avenue. Wickliffe Cemetery is the final resting place of Wickliffe's early settlers, Civil War soldiers, and notable residents.
The cemetery consists of 184 known graves. Headstones are engraved with the names of Wickliffe's first-known settlers William and Clarissa Clarke Jones and the family of Colonel Abner C. Tarbell. Grave sites of Civil War veterans can be found on the north slope. Other notable family names include Arnold, Fuller, Grave, Lloyd, Taylor, Hardaker, King, Strong, and Rush.
When visiting the cemetery, one will find a wealth of Wickliffe history and memories.
Following the Memorial Day service at Wickliffe City Hall, the Brewer-Tarasco American Legion Post Number 7 honors the many veterans buried in the cemetery. Post members gather for the traditional playing of "Taps" and a 21-gun salute. As you visit the cemetery, you will find a wealth of Wickliffe history and memories.
