Mentor Municipal Cemetery Memorials

Historic Mentor Cemetery Founded In 1854

Perhaps Lake County Ohio’s most historic center for internment, the Kotecki family has been designing and crafting Mentor Municipal Cemetery memorials for generations. The cemetery is located at the intersection of Jackson Street and Hopkins Road. Established in 1854, Mentor Cemetery sits on 10 aces of land spanning two regions once known as Amasa Cobbs corners and David Hopkins corners. Amasa Cobbs (died March 16, 1865) was the first to be buried on the property.

With over 16,000 memorials, Mentor Cemetery stands as a prominent center for reverential burial, and one with quite a legacy within Lake County. Among those honored include James Rudolph Garfield, Presidential Cabinet Secretary and son to US President James A Garfield.
