Cemetery's bequest: Rest for dead, respite for the living


Members of the Kinnickinnic Cemetery Association agree that the old graveyard, once known as the Hillside Cemetery, not only provides a final resting place for the dead but also many interesting stories and a special kind of getaway for the living.

The volunteers love coming there, working there and keeping it nice. They enjoy the peace of it.
