To reach this cemetery, in Richmond, drive west on Main Street to about 7 blocks west of Thornton Street. The cemetery is west of the very small Shotwell Cemetery and east of the Sunny Slope Cemetery, all of which are on the north side of Main Street.
This cemetery was established about 1875 and some say it was the city cemetery. Older records and obituaries call it Richmond City Cemetery, but at the present time it is not the city cemetery.
At one time this cemetery fell into disrepair with no one caring for it. The Circuit Court set up the Richmond Cemetery Association to care for this cemetery. The cemetery records were lost or destroyed long years ago and they no longer can sell plots. They only inter those who already have previously purchased deeds to plots. - per Powers Alder, trustee for the cemetery association.
