MILL CREEK FRIENDS CEMETERY
Center Township, Hendricks County, Indiana

Visited February 1, 2006
This cemetery is on the east side of CR 250W, just north of CR 200S.
It is mostly behind (east) and south of the old meetinghouse. The
cemetery is large and easily visible from the road.

This cemetery is mowed, partially fenced, and mostly maintained.
The cemetery association cares for the cemetery but has not done extensive
work in the old section. The newer graves are around the meetinghouse
and the older ones are in the far eastern section. Thick yellow and
black mosses grow on most of the older stones. Many tablets were placed
in small amounts of wet concrete in the past. Some of those stones
have broken at the concrete level. Many others have fallen, taking
the concrete with them. Most tablets in the old section are leaning.
Some stones are in danger of falling down the nearby ravine. One base
was found over the edge. Overall, this cemetery is well taken care of, but
the older stones need a good cleaning and proper resetting.
