Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery is the second national cemetery built in Ohio and the 119th in the national cemetery system. The first phase of construction, covering 65 acres of the 273-acre cemetery, included 15,900 gravesites, 2,000 columbaria niches and 1,000 in-ground garden niches for cremated remains. At full capacity, Ohio Western Reserve can provide burial space for 106,000 eligible veterans and dependents. The cemetery’s name refers to the part of the Northwest Territory formerly known as the Connecticut Western Reserve, a tract of land in Northeast Ohio reserved by the State of Connecticut when it ceded its claims for western lands to the U.S. government in 1786.
