The Township has maintained the historical Marshall Cemetery for over twenty years, and we are working to preserve this landmarked cemetery's character. Marshall Cemetery, located on the south side of Regan Road and one mile east of Parker Road, was created on the part of Chester Marshall's farm.
Marshall Cemetary
Marshall Cemetery is a two-acre cemetery. One acre holds a historical designation in that it has documented burials that date back to the early 1800s before its official recognition as a public cemetery. Over the last four years, the Township has developed the other acre in response to the community's desire.

Part of the development stages included the removal of the overgrowth and non-native trees. After the overgrowth was removed, clean fill was brought in, and the ground was shaped and seeded. We have planted five maple trees and a serviceberry bush to enhance the landscape. The new entrances have wrought iron gates that match the original gate in the historical section. A U-shaped gravel drive was put in to allow for off-street parking and a parallel parking lane along Regan Road. Last fall, we were able to pave the driveway.

The Township has appreciated the efforts of community volunteers such as Lincoln-Way Central High School students and the Eagle Scouts for their participation in the cleanup of fallen branches, overgrowth along the fence lines, and landscaping improvements along the walkway in the historic section of the cemetery.
