Milford IOOF Cemetery
(Clermont)
Carriage Way-Riverside Park II
Milford, OH 45150 USA
Miami Twp. Inactive
 
You may take St. Rt. 28 or St. Rt. 50 into the City of Milford.  As you enter the intersection of St. Rt. 28 and St. Rt. 50 continue on Main Street-Rt. 50.  You will pass St. Andrews Catholic Church. As you descend down a small hill entering “Old Milford” you will turn right on High Street.  This will dead end into Carriage Way – which is not a road, just a walking path.  I parked at the Lila Chateau Apartments to the right and walked over to the park. Access:  see below.
 
Pictures and additional inscriptions taken by Pamela Smith, CCGS member, and Cathy Kemplin, volunteer on November 6, 2006.  Please notice the fenced area of the cemetery.  This is not actually the “cemetery”.  There may have been a few burials located within this fence but the majority of the burials are on a steep hill, in the woods, along the Little Miami River and within the park grounds.  As stones are found they are carried to the fenced area and placed anywhere. There are a lot of monument bases still in the woods and I am sure buried stones - somewhere.  This would be a tremendous task for me and I may attempt to do in the future.  Most monuments have been vandalized and broke, lost in pieces throughout the park located around the play area.  We found bases located in the ground where the children play.  You can imagine what the neighbors were thinking as we were digging up the children’s playground.  If you plan to visit please walk the park grounds and then go into the woods. This cemetery has been neglected and the site misused as a playground.
