An article by Bob Dyer in the Akron Beacon Journal tells of the decline of one of the oldest cemeteries in Akron. Mt. Hope relies completely on donations, but unfortunately, cemetery trustees aren't receiving enough each year to properly maintain it. About 75 percent of Mount Hope’s 8 acres are now overgrown with grass and weeds.
Donations can be mailed to the cemetery office at 1338 Sweitzer Ave., Akron, OH 44301.
