Cliff Mine Cemetery

Also listed as Cliff Protestant or Hillside Cemetery

This cemetery is located on Cliff Drive in Keweenaw County at the old Cliff Mines site at the at the base of  Cliff Range. It has few stones left but many depressions. We searched the depressions but could find no stones that had perhaps broken or fallen over and were covered by the forest floor and overgrowth.
