Pioneer Cemeteries


           In the United States and Canada, a pioneer cemetery is a cemetery that is the burial place for pioneers in any area subject to territorial expansion, with founding dates spanning from the late 18th to early 20th centuries.  Nearly all of the cemeteries in Henry County qualify as pioneer cemeteries.  Below are links to the cemeteries that have received historical signs from the Indiana Historical Bureau.  Please see the link on the main page to learn more about the Bureau and its initiatives, including how to apply for a historical cemetery marker.
