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 could be bridged by Jefferson County Public Works.

RE: "5 proposed Shop locations shown inside the red outline".

These 5 identical building have been sited along the new Marguerite's Alley with restrictions as shown below:

  • The Bisch-Townsend Cemetery Road higher up the hill would now 'T' into The Alley
  • thus abandoning the 'ski slope' downhill through the 5 proposed Shop locations red outline from the Cemetery road while
  • letting the Alley join Valles Mines School Road safely with improved sight lines on flat ground
  • from both the north and south ends.

The 5 proposed Shops designed and built from classic Missouri oak framing and siding but with modern amenities (14119, 14121, 14123, 14125, 14127 Vm. Sch. Rd.)
