Monroe Township, Clark County, Indiana

This cemetery is located very close to Mt. Zion Cemetery, just west of Henryville on Blue Lick Road, WEST of I-65.

To reach the cemetery, turn SOUTH onto Blue Lick Road from Highway 160 and proceed about 1 mile. The first cemetery you approach will be St. Francis Cemetery, on the west side of the road.
