Crowsheart Cemetery - Dunn County, ND

Crowsheart Cemetery

The NE Quarter of Section 4 in Township 147 N, Range 92 W
Twin Buttes, Dunn County, ND, USA

Crowsheart Cemetery is the most difficult cemetery in Dunn County to get to. It is not marked and because the terrain is so steep and rugged it is marginally accessible with a 4-wheel drive vehicle. It is a small family cemetery located on private property approximately 7 miles northwest of Twin Buttes. In order to respect the privacy of the landowner and because of the challenge with accessibility, specific directions to this cemetery are not provided.

Crowsheart Cemetery overlooks Lake Sakakawea and is not fenced or maintained. The northwestern most gravesites are only several feet away from the 100 or so foot bank of the shore. The view is breathtaking.
