Danish Lutheran Cemetery
Fruitdale, Butte County, South Dakota

Lat: 44° 38' 28"N, Lon: 103° 38' 56"W
T7N R6W Section 20

Contributed by Nicole Shiffrar, Mar 11, 2007 [robb22@msn.com]. Total records = 93.

South from Fruitdale on Cobb Lane about 2 miles, turn east or left onto Snoma Road and continue for about 3.5 miles to Danish Road where you turn right. Cemetery will be on your right side.

The cemetery is pretty old, and is in fair condition. Some headstones have collapsed, and there are some missing as well.There are a few newer deaths, but not many. It is accessible by the public at all hours.

I am unsure who owns and maintains it, but it is most likely owned and maintained by the Danish Lutheran Church of Fruitdale. It dates back to the 1890s according to the stones.

This is a complete reading of all existing and legible stones and markers, which I completed on Mar 11, 2007.
