Cemetery notes and/or description:
For information on a patient buried in the hospital's cemetery, visit www.toledostatehospitalcemetery.org

The Toledo State Hospital Asylum was opened by the county in 1888 and began moving patients off the property in the early 1970's. Burials in the cemetery also stopped at that time and later the buildings were destroyed. During its active years, the hospital buried patients in the cemetery whose family did not claim their remains after death. While some patients suffered from mental illness, other suffered from brain disorders that are treatable today but misunderstood back then, such as epilepsy. No grave stones were erected for these shunned and forgotten members of society. Only a small concrete block listing the burial number was placed on the grave. There were 1,994 people buried in the cemetery during those years.
