…Calvary Cemetery was developed to become the new centrally located cemetery in Cleveland?

Leland Farm, located just six miles south of Cleveland Public Square, was purchased in 1893 for the development of Calvary Cemetery because it had long become evident that St. John and St. Joseph Cemeteries on Woodland Ave. were becoming too small for the 90,000 members of the city parishes.
