West Burlington Cemetery: Transcriber "Becke Dawson" firstname.lastname@example.org
This hill was once used by the town folk as a lookout point from which to
spot paddle wheel steamers approaching Burlington from the south on the
Concordia Township, Des Moines County, Iowa. Take the gravel road to the ISU Electric Power House about 1/2 mile off of old Highway 61.
