|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Fountain Cemetery encompasses nearly 38 acres between Summit and Van Buren streets in Fostoria, OH. While the City of Fostoria itself spans three counties (Hancock, Seneca and Wood) in Northwest Ohio, Fountain Cemetery lies entirely within Hancock County. The cemetery was established as “Fostoria Cemetery” in 1856 when the first graves were dug for two children of the Rev. G.W. Collier, the pastor of the Methodist Church. In 1900, the cemetery was renamed “Fountain Cemetery” because of its many fountains that graced the grounds.
