St. Mary Byzantine Catholic Cemetery
The St. Mary Byzantine Catholic Cemetery is located on East Main Street in Marblehead, Ottawa County, Ohio. St. Mary Byzantine Catholic Church is part of the Eparchy of Parma. You can see Lake Erie from the cemetery, and the Marblehead Lighthouse is just around the bend of the Marblehead Peninsula.
A three bar cross can be found on many of the tombstones in the St Mary Byzantine Catholic Cemetery.
Over one hundred interments from the St. Mary Byzantine Catholic Cemetery can be viewed online at FindaGrave.
The annual Halupki Festival is celebrated every August just across the road from the St. Mary Byzantine Catholic Cemetery on the lawn behind the Holy Assumption Orthodox Church. Many Eastern European dishes are served at the Halupki Festival, and live polka bands provide live entertainment throughout the day.
