Swiss Cemetery listings


 

Located just east of California at the intersection of String Creek Road and Whippoorwill Road, this cemetery is located on the southwest corner of the intersection. It has a fence around it even it has fallen down along String Creek Road. The cemetery is covered in trees, weeds and other undergrowth. Most of the stones are still standing in Fall of 2000 but the cemetery is in need of major cleanup work.


Two views of the Swiss cemetery. The one on the left is taken from String Creek Road. The one on the right is taken in the cemetery. What are the "round top" rocks as seen in the foreground?
