Rural Home Cemetery

photo3Rural Home Cemetery was established in the mid 1800’s (approx. 1840) and is located within the Village of Big Bend. The Cemetery was deeded to the Village in 2014 and has been cared for by the Village’s Cemetery Board Members and the Department of Public Works ever since.

The setting is quiet beauty and comfort overlooking the Fox River in beautiful Southeastern Wisconsin. The manicured lawns, views of the river and changing colors of the leaves during fall make this land some of the most beautiful in the area.
