Adamson Grove Cemetery is difficult to find as it is back in a field that doesn't have an obvious entrance. Once found you can see that it is well maintained and is in a beautiful and peaceful setting.


"Adamson Grove Cemetery began in the fall of 1846 when Henry Adamson died. Many of the early graves from this time on were Adamson graves. A little over two acres was deeded in 1849 for use as a cemetery. Today it is fenced, has a gate, is well maintained, but access is down a poorly maintained lane. There are approximately 140 burials in Adamson Grove Cemetery and the tombstones are in fair to good condition."
