Moravian Church Cemetery - Chaska, Minnesota

city of Chaska, Carver County, Minnesota: T115N - R23W, section 5

The complete transcription for this cemetery is available in “Cemeteries of Eastern Carver County, Minnesota,” by Debbie Boe.  Copies can be purchased through the website. 

I claim and reserve any and all rights to the works that I have compiled and created.  These pages may be viewed much like a library book, but I do not approve of any type of reproduction in any format.  Persons or organizations desiring to use the information contained within in my web pages MUST obtain my written consent. All information is for Non-Profit use only.

This cemetery is maintained on a regular basis and is in good shape. The SE section has very few burial monuments, with the few remaining being older burial monuments. The NE and SW sections are fairly full of burials, with the NW section having the most recent burials.

Within the boundaries of the Moravian Cemetery is the Priebe Family Cemetery. I have listed the Priebe Family Cemetery as a separate cemetery.

In the "Compendium of History and Biography of Carver and Hennepin Counties, Minnesota" [1915] edited by Maj. R.I. Holcombe and William H. Bingham, they wrote:  "The first regularly organized church to hold religious services was the MaravianIt was formed 1 January 1858 ..." (page 231).

This cemeteries burial monuments were transcribed during the spring of 1998.
