Eberly Cemetery: Introduction

Located in the unincorporated township of Concord, Iowa in Woodbury County, between Sioux City and Lawton, Iowa along "old" Iowa Highway 20, today called Correctionville Road, is the historic Eberly Cemetery. The graves date back as far as the 1800's. Some of the dates on the headstones are as new as the early 1900's. This cemetery was named for the Eberly family who once lived in the area. No one has been buried at the cemetery for several decades. This historic cemetery is open to the public from sunrise to sunset.
