Civil War Soldier Chester Cemetery
This is a nicely kept up country cemetery north of Grinnell. The monument is about 13 feet high with a granite base and soldier made of marble. The face and build makes the soldier look very young. The inscription reads "In memory of our Fallen Heroes 1861-1865." Take Highway 146 north of Grinnell – turn east on 320 Avenue – then turn north on 35th street for about 1/2 mile to the cemetery. The first photo was taken 7/26/10 - the second one on 10/8/17.
