Scandia Baptist Cemetery

Laketown Township, Carver County, Minnesota: T116N - R24W, section 18

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 appears to have minimal care and is in fair shape. There is no longer a church at this location. The cemetery gate states 'Scandia Baptist Cemetery 1855 - 1955'. Most of the cemeteries fencing has been removed. The cemetery is across the street from Island View Country Club.

In "History of the Minnesota Valley" [1882] by Rev. Edward D. Neill, he wrote: ‘... A cemetery was established on land deeded by Andrew Bergquist in section 18, a few rods east of the church. The first person buried in it was Peter Swenson, of Waconia, buried in 1859 (page 379).'

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