Highland Cemetery
Located on Brown School Road in St. Joseph Township.

In 1906 the January 7th carried an article of a City Council Meeting where the sale of Highland Cemetery was discussed. The mayor was requested to appoint a committee a three in conjunction with the cemetery trustees to discuss the best figure that Highland could be sold for and also possible locations to consider for a new cemetery. The St. Joseph City cemetery on Lake Shore road was already near capacity. It was desired to locate a new cemetery near interurban lines where funeral trains could run without trouble to the cemeteries. Evidently this cemetery was not sold as it is owned and operated by the City Of St. Joseph. There are not that many stones visible and evidently is is not longer used for burial purposes as other newer cemeteries are available.
