Big Spring Cemetery, New Haven Township, Adams County, WI
Big Spring Cemetery



(Please excuse the sawdust, I am working on this.)

Big Spring Cemetery is located in New Haven Township, Adams County, WI.
To get there, take Hwy 23 East out of Wisconsin Dells (towards Briggsville).
You will go about 7 miles before you come to Hwy G.
Turn Left onto Hwy G.
Go about 1.5 miles, and there will be a old white church that has been recently painted on your Right.
Turn Right.
This is 3rd Avenue.
The cemetery is on your Right, about 500 feet from the church.
It covers a rolling hill. Older stones are in the front, newer ones in the back.
There area a lot of big old trees surrounding this cemetery.

In this cemetery, the rows start at the Western fence (older stones), and run North to South.

My goal is to complete this cemetery before Winter, but this may not happen.
