old Sacred Heart Cemetery is on the east side of North Porcupine Lake
just south of Arndt Road. It is well maintained,
sitting back quite a way west from the road frontage along a dirt entry road and is surrounded by a chain fence.
A park bench and well water hand pump welcomes you at the entrance.
As with many early cemeteries, stillborn and infants who died before being baptized
were buried along the fence, mostly at the back of the cemetery.
These graves were dug by the family and generally not marked or recorded,
so the infant's family and place of burial are often not known.
cemetery is affiliated with the former Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic
which is just south of the cemetery
on the east side of North Porcupine Road.
The church is now named Holy Family Church.
