Scott Cemetery

Scott Cemetery is a joint project, between Milan Township, Huron Township, and the city of Huron, Ohio. The cemetery is located in the northern section of Milan Township, just south of the Huron Township boundary, on Huron-Avery Road. The cemetery is surrounded by farmland, and the facilities of the NASA's Plum Brook Station can be seen in the distance.

Charles C. Cleveland served in Company F of the Ohio 197th Infantry during the Civil War. He was a member of the G.A.R.

Ethel Swanbeck, who was the first woman to serve eleven consecutive terms in the Ohio House of Representatives, is buried in Scott Cemetery with her husband Carl Swanbeck.

Several listings for persons buried in Scott Cemetery are found at the FindaGrave website. An index of names of persons buried in Scott Cemetery prior to 1909 appears online as well. The former general manager of the Detroit Tigers, Jim Campbell, is buried at Scott Cemetery. Mr. Campbell passed away in 1995. Jim Campbell Boulevard in Huron is named for Jim Campbell.
