Willett Street Cemetery is the oldest Jewish cemetery in the city of Cleveland, Ohio. It was founded in 1840 by the Israelitic Society of Cleveland, which merged with Anshe Chesed Congregation in 1845. Today the cemetery is administered jointly by Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple and the Temple-Tifereth Israel. Many of Cleveland's early German Jewish immigrants are buried in the cemetery. The collection consists of 22 black and white snapshots of graves at the cemetery.
