History

Hales Passage Scandinavian Lutheran Cemetery

Click to find out more about Hales Passage Scandinavian Lutheran Cemetery
Not far from Hales Passage on a quiet country road lies the Cromwell Cemetery. It is a fitting resting place for the Scandinavian fishermen, farmers and their families who first settled the Cromwell area.

The Cemetery Association was first formed on January 3, 1903 and was originally called the “Hales Passage Scandinavian Lutheran Cemetery Association.”

In the early years of its beginning only those of Lutheran faith were interred there, but in the years since other citizens of the Cromwell and surrounding are area have found it a final abiding place for their loved ones.

The cemetery began on land donated by Gabriel Evje and F.W. Samuelson. January 3, 1903. FW Samuelson and Gabriel Evje each offered to donate one acre of land at the point where their respective lands joined at the County road, on the west side thereof, north of Calvert schoolhouse for cemetery purposes. Said land to be so bounded that the length of the entire tract from north to south shall be 330 feet and the width thereof (east to west) shall be 264 feet.
From original records of 1903

The annual cemetery clean up, general meeting and community potluck are always held on the Saturday preceding the Memorial Day weekend.
