Edson Union Cemetery
Edson Union Cemetery was dedicated in 1887 by Maria and Edson Chubb, as a memorial to their only child Joseph. Buried here are Civil War veterans, victims of the 1880 diphtheria epidemic, and soldiers of the Spanish and American War.
Edson Chubb (1819-1912) was the founder of the Chippewa County town of Edson. He selected this area as a homestead in 1857 and established a settlement which grew to include a sawmill, school, stores, church and a post office. The community vanished when the railroad by-passed the area.
