The Bisch-Townsend Cemetery The "Cem" shown on this map is the Bisch-Townsend Cemetery. Its
"Cemetery Road" shown by the dotted green line was cut
off when Valles Mines School Road was paved by the County. This cemetery had its last burial in 1965 but the
result of the new culvert was to cut off many families who had come to visit their members graves for
literally hundreds of years.
While a Go-Fund-Me account has been considered, research recently has shown this culvert should have been
bridged (and paid for) by Jefferson County as other counties nearby have done.
