Description   EN   

There is a single entrance at the very far west of the cemetery off Grand River.  The more obvious gates with the cemetery name are not the entrance.  The road is a one way loop that exits in the roughly the middle of the cemetery.  The road through the cemetery is paved. Half-way up after entering is a small area to pull off.  Half-way down the return loop is another smaller area to pull off.  The other option for parking is a side loop near the exit.


There are no hours posted for the cemetery so it would be best to assume dawn to dusk hours.  It is an active cemetery so be considerate and cautious when visitors are present.


This historic cemetery is the burial place of many of the founding families of Farmington.  You will find their names on many of the streets, such as Power, Warner, Halstead and Drake.  The additional waypoint listed is to one of my favorite gravestones in the cemetery. 


The cache is a homemade camo-painted microcache.  When you open it up it should be obvious what it is made from.  Please bring your own pen or pencil.  This cache should be accessible during winter.
