A Painful Reminder of a Forgotten Era
There are hundreds, probably thousands, of men and women buried at Cherry Hospital. The vast majority are unmarked and unknown.
The following pictures are from the graveyard located off West Ash Street, behind the SPX facility and across the street from the State Employees’ Credit Union.
The burials are primarily from the early 1900s and consist of no more than a death date, patient number, and sometimes a name.
