Allen Cemetery

The location of this cemetery is Section 25, Rockford Township, NE corner of SW 14/ of NW 1/4. It does not appear in the 1885 Atlas of Pottawattamie County, but by the burial dates for Joseph and Eliza Allen's children -- 1858, 1865 and 1868, it was in existence early on as probably a private cemetery. The land around the cemetery, in 1885, was owned by Joseph Allen, E. Allen, Agnes Allen and Jas. Allen. To get to Allen Cemetery, from Crescent, go north on Highway 183 (Old Lincoln Highway) to 170th Street. At 170th St. turn left and go approximately 1-1/4 miles. The cemetery is on a hill to the right. There is a gate and small sign near the road. The cemetery is fenced with a gate near the road. It still accepts new burials. It was read November 10, 2001. It was read right to left with row 1 being nearest the road.
