Friends of Oak Ridge Cemetery was formed in 2003 with the primary objective of cleaning and repairing grave stones and monuments in the old part of the cemetery, and a more general objective of ‘Preserving Our Heritage.’ In 2005 we published an index to burials (revised edition available) and currently publish a quarterly newsletter. We have added informational plaques at several locations in the cemetery (Potter’s Field, The ‘Old Burying Ground’ Memorial Area, and on the north side of the Civil War cannon). Our largest project was the erection of the Front Street Entrance Sign (columns and arch).
Oak Ridge Cemetery is owned by the City of Buchanan, Michigan, and located on the west side of town, between Terre Coupe and Front Streets. The cemetery was established in 1864.
