Ridgelawn Cemetery

Notes:
The Ridgelawn Cemetery is located within the Breckenridge Village limits. The cemetery is north of M-46, between Elm and Sexton Streets, with the main entrance off Pine Street. The first meeting for the purpose of organizing the Breckenridge Cemetery Association was held May 13, 1901. In May of 1923, it was resolved “that it is the sense of the Board of Directors of the Breckenridge Cemetery Association that in the best interest of the association to transfer all of its property rights including any rights of burials lots heretofore conveyed to the Village of Breckenridge upon the condition that said Village of Breckenridge take over said property and look after and care for said cemetery”.

The Ridgelawn Cemetery now consists of eleven acres and there are roughly 6200 bodies resting at peace there.
