Standing Rock Cemetery
eBird Bar Charts by Season
Kent’s founders–Zenas, Marvin, and William Kent–are all interred at the Standing Rock Cemetery.
The cemetery on Kent’s north side sits between the city’s high school and the Cuyahoga River. Its namesake–the standing rock in the middle of the river–is picturesque and the subject of considerable local lore. The most frequently heard tale is that the large, flat-topped rock was used for council meetings by Native American tribes.
The still-active cemetery is well-kept and still used as the endpoint for the city’s annual Memorial Day parade.
No restroom facilities.
