Olson Cemetery

A neat, well-cared for family burial ground known as the Olson Cemetery is located 2 miles south and 1 mile west of Junius. In 1879 Jens (later James) and Ingeborg Olson, early pioneer settlers, donated one acre of land as a cemetery. It is maintained by members of the Olson family. In May 1985 Mrs. Louise Ayers placed a plaque on a huge boulder.
