Westwood Cemetery Memorials

In 1830s, Oberlin Founders Begin Historic Memorial Park

What began as a two-acre land purchase in the 1830s, Westwood Cemetery now stands as one of Lorain County’s iconic and historical burial parks. Kotecki Family Memorials has provided markers and monuments in Lorain County and throughout Northeast Ohio for over 125 years.

With over 9,000 memorials represented, the cemetery holds some historic family stories. US Congressman James Monroe, Cartoonist Marjorie Buell, and Lieutenant Colonel John Steele are among those interred. The cemetery is located on Morgan Street one mile west of Main Street.

Numerous burial options are available. Kotecki’s team of memorialists are knowledgeable and available to discuss monument options and regulations.
