Checkered Cemetery, Assyria Township, Barry County, Michigan, USA



  • location: From M-66, take Huff Road West. This road will eventually become a gravel road, which will continue through a couple curves and become a paved road once again. At the point where this road becomes paved, a paved road will meet it from the North. Directly to the South of Huff Road, from where this paved road comes in from the North, will be a barely noticeable path. This path is at the East end of a private home and just to the West of a fence which forms the Western-most boundary of another private home. Take this path South, up a hill to the cemetery. Driving along this path will seem like driving through someone's backyard.
