Lutheran Grave Yard

St. Paul's Lutheran Church Graveyard Hillsboro Illinois
 
A tourist traveling on North Broad Street will see only a row of houses on the east side of the street, but almost a century ago the ground east of Broad Street and south of Vawter Street was the burial place for many members of the Lutheran faith, and for other citizens of Hillsboro. Shortly after the purchase of the Cress Hill plot, the Broad Street graves were moved there and to other cemeteries.
