Hill of Zion Cemetery

In May 2005, my daughter and I visited Adair County and its cemeteries. We drove to every one except those that were on private property or otherwise inaccessible. I will be putting on photos for each and a small commentary. We visited right before Memorial Day which was a perfect time to see them in their prime. The peonies were in full bloom and gorgeous!

"There is a cemetery of about six acres laid out on the southeast quarter of the southeast quarter of section 16. This was set aside in 1875 for burial purposes, and the first interment therein was that of two chidren of George Schweers, in 1876."

transcribed from the History of Guthrie and Adair Counties, Iowa, 1864
