President's Half Acre - Stonewall Cemetery

In Stonewall Cemetery Lancaster, Ohio, the land was deeded to whoever the sitting President is. So every President since James Monroe has owned it.

President's Half Acre - Stonewall Cemetery

This is an old family cemetery in the rural Lancaster, Ohio vicinity. It is surrounded by a circular stone wall of massive stones. The founder of the cemetery deeded the property to the President of the United States forever, in hopes that they would take an interest and would care for it. Needless to say, none has. It has been severely vandalized. The Ohio Historical Society cared for it for many years.
