Winneshiek County Pioneer Cemetery Commission

Its mission is to identify, protect, preserve and maintain these cemeteries and the monuments in them.

  A "pioneer cemetery" is defined as a cemetery where there have been twelve or fewer burials in the preceding fifty years.  The maintenance and repair of all cemeteries under the jurisdiction of the county, including pioneer cemeteries, are paid from the county general fund.  The maintenance and improvement program for a pioneer cemetery may also include restoration and management of native prairie grasses and wildflowers.
