Bird Cemetery sits on top of a hill overlooking the Madison Valley and
Pennington Bridge, drive South West from Twin Bridges on Highway 41 about
4 miles to the Pennington Bridge fishing access road (mile marker 23)
and drive another 3 miles on a dirt road to two bridges. The second bridge
is Pennington Bridge. After crossing the 2nd bridge you will see 2 white
houses. Look up on top of the hill behind the white house on the right.
There are about 15 souls buried in this cemetery. There has been no
one buried here since the mid 1940s.
It is not maintained and one needs a 4-wheel vehicle to drive up there.
It is a beautiful view from the cemetery and I can understand why these
souls are buried here.
My husband and I walked this cemetery and recorded all legible stones.
This work is complete as of Aug 02, 2006.
