Sylvan Grove Cemetery

Buzick There are just shy of 500 known burials in Sylvan Grove Cemetery, which is east of Sylvan and sites side by side with Bethlehem Lutheran Cemetery.Sylvan Grove Cemetery was not formed until 1896 -- the earliest burial I find mentioned is in late 1896 -- and lots went on sale in March of 1897. Before that, Sylvan folks buried their departed ones in Vesper Cemetery; after the Sylvan Cemetery opened; some of those bodies were moved back to Sylvan.

Although the stone may be hard to see in this photo, it is one of the most beautiful adornments I've seen in Lincoln County's cemeteries -- or it was until it was vandalized in 2011.
