Section 1721.02 | Appropriation of land for cemetery purposes.


If it is necessary for a cemetery company or association, for cemetery purposes, to acquire lands by appropriation, such proceedings shall be taken therefor as are provided for in sections 163.01 to 163.22, inclusive, of the Revised Code. No lands shall be appropriated until the probate court or court of common pleas is satisfied that suitable premises cannot be obtained by contract upon reasonable terms, and no lands shall be appropriated upon which there is a dwelling house, farm building, orchard, nursery, valuable mineral spring or other medicinal spring, or well actually yielding oil or salt water, unless such lands adjoin a cemetery already in use on the same or opposite side of a public highway.
