Driving east on Hwy #2 turn south on N Columbia Road, the cemetery is on the east or left side of the road.
This cemetery is maintained by Calvary Cemetery Association. Their office is at 216 Belmont Road, Grand Forks, ND 58201 and owned by the Catholic Diocese of Fargo, North Dakota. It is still actively burying.
The earliest readable stone is 1878. The oldest person buried at Calvary was born in 1793. Here is a map I created of the cemetery.
I read every existing and legible stone over a period of five months using my video camera. I did consulate the caretaker, unfortunately his list was too difficult to decipher so I have used only the headstone readings which follow.
This is the complete cemetery as of 2002.
