Located in Fillmore (Town of Farmington), Wisconsin

This cemetery is still a public access property on Trading Post Trail, south of Fillmore Fire Department on property that was once part of the land donated by Ferdinand Keuchenmeister for a church and cemetery. The church was sold in 1908, except the cemetery and small strip of land along the north to be kept free and clear for a driveway for teams and foot passengers to and from said highway and cemetery. The proceeds of the sale of property was to be applied toward building a suitable fence around the cemetery and making other improvements. On Jul 17, 1958, the Town of Farmington was formally petitioned by twelve descendants of relatives buried in the cemetery according to a new state law that called for perpetual upkeep of cemetery properties to be provided by the town government.

Currently, Don Zimdars takes care of grass cutting, and a newer hedge fence surrounds the cemetery. A small parking lot to the north of the cemetery is provided for visitors. Transcribed in May of 2000 by Brian Zalewski.
