SALEM BAPTIST CEMETERY
Washington Township, Hendricks County, Indiana
NE Corner of Sec 32, T16N R2E
Visited July 30, 2005

Directions:
This cemetery is on the west side of Raceway Road (Marion/Hendricks County Line), just south of 200N.  The old church sits on the corner.  The cemetery is visible from the road.

Corners:
NW: N39°47.574’ W86°19.619’
SE: N39°47.522’ W86°19.601’

Approximate Center:
N39°47.548’ W86°19.610’ or
N394733 W861937

Condition:
This cemetery is fenced, occasionally mowed, but not maintained.  The grass was tall at this visit.  A dumpster was in the corner and trees and branches were being taken away.  This cemetery has mostly stack stones, some old and some modern.  Most are leaning to the east, into the grave depressions.  Some stones have already fallen, but many others will soon.  There are a couple broken stones, probably as a result of vandalism, since they are thick, sturdy stones and not near any trees. One burial list noted that there were 130 graves marked with wooden headboards (which are gone now if they existed).
