They don't get many visitors and no longer accept new occupants but several area abandoned cemeteries have retained a country charm.
The markings on some headstones are written in German or Swedish. After more than a century of severe weather, some of the headstones are broken while others are worn illegible.
Adams County pays for the mowing of five cemeteries: The True Dutch Reformed Cemetery and Scandinavian Lutheran Cemetery near Glenvil; Morseville Cemetery near Holstein; Shiloh Cemetery near Kenesaw and Saxour Cemetery near Ayr.
Care from the county extends only to mowing and minor repairs.
