Spring grove cemetery
Spring Grove Cemetery is located on the west side of U.S. Highway 67 about six and a half miles north of Monmouth, Illinois, in the southeast corner of section 20 in Spring Grove Township. It is approximately 1 acre in size and was in use primarily during the late 1800's. The Presbyterian Church purchased the land for a burial ground on September 6, 1959, from Middleton Fulton. Presently, the maintenance and management of the cemetery is under the direction of four trustees appointed by the court in the late 1960's for terms of unlimited tenure. The cemetery is burned off regularly and trees are removed; it is not mowed because it is an outstanding area for native grasses and forbs in the State of Illinois. In May 1981, the Spring Grove Cemetery inscriptions were identified as:
