Merrillville Cemetery, Merrillville


Merrillville-Cemetery-Headstone-DedicationLocated on 73rd Avenue just east of Broadway, Merrillville's historic cemetery is the final resting place of the town's founder and more than 30 region Civil War veterans. Beyond the stories in this collection, more can be learned about the Merrillville Cemetery Civil War veterans – and veterans of other wars buried there – in Alice Smedstad's book, "Soldiers & Veterans Memorialized at the Merrillville Cemetery." The book is available for $5 at the Merrillville Ross Township Historical Society Museum, located a short distance west of the cemetery on 73rd Avenue. All book proceeds benefit the Historical Society.
