Eau Claire in Eau Claire County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Eau Claire County Old Orchard Cemetery
— Eau Claire County • 1856 —
As you walk among these unassuming gravestones, you will see that some only have names, no birth or death dates, and some are unknown. Many of the older gravestones memorialize persons who spent their entire adult lives in the County Asylum. In later years, the County has buried indigent or unknown persons here.
Although this cemetery was called by many names over the years, on December 4, 2007, the Eau Claire County Board of Supervisors honored its historical significance and officially named it.
