The cemetery directions leaving Roseau take Hwy #11 west for 9 miles watch for county road #114 right (south) turn here drive 3/4 miles east the cemetery will be in the corner on County Road #114 & 300th Avenue or leaving. To reach it from Badger MN on Hwy #11 go approx 1 mile east to County Road #114 turn south drive approx 3/4 mile, turn right (south) the cemetery will be on the right (west) side.

This cemetery established in 1902 consists of 1 acre of land donated by Even & Bergit H. Norjore. This site held the Norwegian Hauge Synode Church building which is no longer present. The name Opdahl may have came from the place in Opdal, Norway. The Wammer’s came from Opdal Norway who were one of the organizers for the church & cemetery & also are buried here.

The Opdahl Cemetery is gated with a fence around. The people with loved ones here care for the cemetery which is good condition.

A complete walk thru readings of all visible headstones completed transcript as of Apr 10, 2010. A digital camera has been used for pictures.

Misc:
- The cemetery map lists a *Mrs Wammer 1896 – 1986 (which I read as Clara V. Wammer from her stone)
- Fred Hansens’ date on cemetery lot listed map are 1910-1911 (in this Hansen lot a footstone not listed on map has a Kate L. shows her dates b. 31 Dec 1910, d. 16 Jan 1911) the Hansen headstone shows much aging
