Main Street Bluff Cemetery was located within the City of Burlington.
|MAIN STREET BLUFF CEMETERY
An old burying ground consisting of a few stones is said to have existed at one time on the bluff above South Main Street, in back of the 901 Shoppe antique store. The exact location is very uncertain. The story is a steamboat captain pulled ashore at Burlington and buried cholera victims at the location against the wishes of the residents of Burlington. A careful check of the area on two occasions has failed to reveal any tombstones, and persons who supposedly knew about them are now deceased. Mr. Clarence Moody, late editor of The Hawk-Eye, made reference to this cemetery at one time but could not confirm its existence.
