Just visited this place after my father-in-law told us about it and showed us around. Very classy as all the graves are kept in great shape and had wreathes on each tombstone for the holiday season.

We came across this place looking for other places! Civil War history here in Lake Erie, just across from Cedar Point! There was a prison here used to house Confederate Officers, two of them well known. While there is not all that much to see...More

Traveled out of the way to visit this cemetery and I'm glad I did. It's a quaint cemetery but a great piece of history. Beautifully preserved.

It costs $2.00 cash (only) to drive across the causway. The machine that lets you onto the island will only take dollar bills so be sure to take a few dollars with you.

I did not see anything posted but there is a fence. I am sure daylight hours only because of people messing with graves on such a somber place.
