Cemeteries have long history in township

June 12, 2019

Some Butler Township residents may remember back just 35 years or so when grave diggers at the Polk Grove Cemetery used dynamite to blast through the bedrock less than a foot below the ground’s surface. The process has become somewhat less disruptive these days with the use of a hydraulic jackhammer, now the tool of choice for digging 35-40 new graves per year.

Although the nearly 200 year old Polk Grove Cemetery is the only one still active, the Township Service Department maintains five cemeteries in all. In addition to digging the graves, township personnel pour bases for headstones, mow the grass, control weeds and keep the cemeteries clean and attractive.

Some 5,000 plots are still available for purchase. Pricing information is available on the township’s website (www.butlertownship.com/departments-services) or by calling the service department at 890-1218.
