Big Hollow Cemetery
Bear Creek, Sauk County, Wisconsin

Bear Creek Twp, Sec 23

Contributed by Kathy Waddell, Oct 11, 2004, last edited Aug 17, 2006 [kaffe03@yahoo.com]. Total records = 199.

Location: On County G, 1.1 miles south of County B, west of Plain, on the east side of the road.

Land for this cemetery was deeded to the Norwegian and Danish Lutheran Church of Big Hollow on Aug 25, 1884 by Hoover and Julia Anderson. The church moved to Spring Green in 1953 and the name changed to Spring Green Lutheran Church. In 1957, the name was changed again and became Christ Lutheran Church which is in existance today. The cemetery is taken care of by the church and the Big Hollow Cemetery Association.

This is a well kept, country cemetery, divided into two sections. On the right is the older section, on the left is the newer section. Rows are identified by numbers and if there is an "L" with the row number, it is in the new section. There are numerous unmarked graves in this cemetery and there are current burials.
