Zion Lutheran Cemetery
Jefferson Co Nebraska

  

Zion Lutheran Cemetery is located in Section 12, Jefferson Precinct. From Fairbury, go east on Hwy 136 to about 2 miles east of Harbine. Turn north on 581st Ave and go about 1 3/4 miles. The cemetery & church sit on the northeast corner of 581st Ave & 718th Road.

This cemetery is nicely maintained and looks to be still active. It is fenced and gated but unlocked. The plaque on the gatepost gives the year as 1901. This is a complete reading of all stones found in August 2014
