Zion Evangelical Cemetery / Schnappsburg Cemetery

Benton township, Carver County, Minnesota: T115N - R25W, section 30

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

This small to medium sized cemetery is somewhat maintained, but appears to have been vandalized over the years.  At the time of my visit many of the burial monuments dies or tablets were no longer attached to monuments bases. Many had been separated and were leaning against burial monument bases. Some of the more damaged burial monuments had been placed near a large shrub. 

There is no longer a church at this location.

In the "Compendium of History and Biography of Carver and Hennepin Counties, Minnesota" [1915] edited by Maj. R.I. Holcombe and William H. Bingham, t hey wrote:  "Zion's United Evangelical Church, located in the southwestern part of the township, on section 30, was organized in 1870 ..." (page 243).

This cemetery was transcribed during 1991.
