Thoelke Cemetery is a must-see destination on the Sauk Prairie trails. Thoelke Cemetery was once part of a small town with 3 cemeteries, 100+ farms and a church.
Thoelke Cemetery has been long forgotten by most. This area was taken over by the Army to build the munitions area for WWII. The Thoelke Cemetery was one of 3 on this property and is a bit run down. According to the sources below, there are foundation ruins of the church that once stood next to it.
Quest: Find the ruins of the old Immanuel Church and post pictures of your findings.
It is unclear who owns the cemeteries, it would be a neat project to have our local crew come in and brush/mow these small plots once a year if we can get permission to do so.
Here's an interesting article about the cemetery before the land was owned by the DNR.
Historical records of the remains (not complete) can be found here.
