Grandview Flats Cemetery View

It is a small graveyard and fairly well kept, though many of the graves are not marked and a few of the stones are unreadable. The majority of the monuments are simple blocks made of marble and granite. In addition, many who are buried without a marker have a cement block with a plaque bearing the interments name.
