The Oak Grove Cemetery Association
In 1867, "The Ladies of the Oak Grove Cemetery Association" was formed, raising funds and working diligently to improve the Cemetery grounds.
In 1870, the stone arch over the original entrance was donated by the Ladies, and later the fencing along Montgomery Street. The arch was torn down due to safety concerns c. 1960.
This monument, using some of the original archway stones, stands in honor of "The Ladies” of 1870.
This project is a joint effort between the Hillsdale County Historical Society and the Mitchell Research Center and is in memory of the late James O. Taylor.
Erected by Hillsdale County Historical Society.
