This cemetery can be reached by turning north on 1st from the main Hwy by the Elevators. Continue up this road, hanging left each time there is a choice. It will take you right to the cemetery.
This is the cemetery for this unique little town of Wilson Creek, with a population of around 200. One cannot help but notice as they enter and drive through it that it looks as if they were expecting you, and have cleaned everything up just before you arrived.
The cemetery shows the same type of care, it is very well maintained. It is managed by a board, under the Grant County Cemetery District #2.
There is a Potter's Field north of the cemetery with no known burials and no markers. The old timers said there were many buried there.
I have transcribed from my photos when I walked and read this cemetery on Sep 28, 2003. I am willing to share a photo if someone would like. Information in parenthesis ( ) added from another source.
