Cemetery notes and/or description: In 2000 the city of Stambaugh was dissolved and incorporated into the adjacent city of Iron River. Although Stambaugh can still be found on some maps, in actuality the city no longer exists. All the names of the streets which matched names of streets in Iron River were changed.
This cemetery serves the former city of Stambaugh plus Caspian, Gaastra and Stambaugh Twp. The first burial was made in July of 1904. A century later all burial spaces in the cemetery are nearly full, and property is owned on M-189 near the Stambaugh Township Hall which will be used in the future when more burials need to be made.
DIRECTIONS: From McDonald's on US2, turn south and go up Lay Avenue to the top of Stambaugh Hill where you will see the flat-roofed brick Stambaugh Post Office. Turn left (east) on Amber (formerly 1st) and go three blocks to a stop sign. Turn right (south) onto Stambaugh Avenue (formerly Lincoln Avenue). Go past Jasper Street (formerly 10th) and you will see the cemetery on the right.
