From Roseau MN take Highway #89 south for 9 miles, there will be a slight curve on the road to your left (east) turn left (east) onto 220th Street, drive approx 4 ˝ miles, you will notice signs for County Road 21 which you will be on for a short ways, the cemetery will be on your left north side of the road. You can also take County Road #9 off Highway #11 drive south for 8 miles and turn unto 220th St & drive 3 miles west & the cemetery will be on your right side.

Only the steeple of the church remains at the site with a gated fence. The church that was built in 1917 next to the cemetery but is no longer here, the cemetery was also established in the year of 1917. Many of the earlier families started with the church services being held in the homes prior to the building of their churches.

This cemetery is active, the township is the owner & the cemetery is in very good condition, being maintained by family members with loved ones buried here. Perpetual care giving, donations, sale of lots or volunteer work is most welcome. Inscription writing on the older stones are in Norwegian, Swedish, other nationalities as well.

Eunice Lund & I walked the cemetery on Jul 17, 2009. This transcription is complete and includes all existing stones and all names that are visible. I have used a digital camera for pictures.
