Kidwiler Cemetery, Jackson Township, Section 1

Pioneer Cemetery - Abandoned 

Hardin County's oldest cemetery is tucked away so far from the road that probably few of the county's younger residents even know it exists. Here the lonely winds whisper through lonesome pines in Kidwiler cemetery, trees which perhaps form shadows of memoriers of early Hardin county settlers.

This cemetery is located, south of the vanished town of Eagle City, or take the first road south of Iowa Falls Airport, east 7 miles, north 1/2 mile and 1/3 mile west, back in a pasture.

This cemetery is not maintained, it is grown over with weeds, brush, and trees, the stones are hard to find and many are missing.

Compiled by Glenn & Sally Paul 1974.
