Evergreen Cemetery’s rich history dates back to 1859 when the Village of Painesville began to buy land from four Western Reserve families. Celebrated for its natural beauty and unique design, people began to visit the cemetery weekly for walks and picnics. In 1897, the Old Burying Ground on Washington Street was chosen as the site for Harvey High School and many of the people laid to rest in the Old Burying Ground were relocated to Evergreen Cemetery.

Among the notable historical figures buried at Evergreen are thirteen Revolutionary War veterans, educator Thomas Harvey, Governor Samuel Huntington, suffragist Frances Jennings-Casement, railroad tycoon General Jack Casement, Cleveland Indians pitcher Paul Tillotson and 300 Civil War veterans including Medal of Honor recipient Howell Treat
