The City of Beachwood and the Beachwood Historical Society are joining with local veterans and others to commemorate Veterans Day on Sunday, November 9th with a ceremony at 11 a.m. at Beachwood Cemetery.

Beachwood Cemetery is located at the corner of Green and Halburton roads, adjacent to the Canterbury Golf Club, and is the final resting place for more than 40 soldiers. The cemetery dates back to the early 19th century. Veterans of seven wars are buried there, starting with the Revolutionary War.
