What is the proper name of the cemetery?

The cemetery has been known by a few names over the years, most commonly referred to as “Odd Fellows Cemetery” ,“The IOOF Cemetery”, or “The Cemetery on South Chestnut Street”. Out of respect to the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the organization which founded the cemetery, we have referred to the cemetery as “The Former IOOF Cemetery” (in accordance with their request to change the name so as to show the cemetery is no longer affiliated with their organization) since 2011.
