Glimpse Inside

Excerpt 1

Maple Grove Cemetery

Maple Grove Cemetery is very hard to see from the road. This is on a small dirt path with parking inside the cemetery but it is located in a copse of trees. Caution is advised when going into this cemetery because of the limited sight distance from the road as it seems to be frequented by the locals.

Caswell Cemetery is located on two sides of the road. The older section is located on one side while the newer section is on the other although older markers are located on both side as well as present.
