Cemetery notes and/or description:

The SUNRISE CEMETERY is located west of the St. Croix River among tall pines that were planted in the pioneer days. It is on the east side of Ferry Road, near the Wild River State Park lands.

Folklore history suggests part of the cemetery was previously used as a Native American burial grounds although a specific area is not evident today.

A display structure in the cemetery contains placards which list all war veteran burials in the Sunrise cemetery. There are 21 names from the Civil War, 13 names from World War I, 37 names from World War II, 11 names from the Korean War, and 3 names from the Vietnam War.

The Sunrise Cemetery was laid out in a north / south grid pattern of 4 sections of lots. The cemetery contains 192 lots that accommodate multiple graves. A copy of the original plat map in PDF format can be downloaded from here.
