The Bell Cemetery is located off Besser Bay Road. To find it, go about half way down Besser Bay Road and find the first 2 track to the right. Follow the track and it will
take you directly to it. It is located near the power lines. The path goes
between the two parts of the cemetery. It has a wooden fence around both
sections and is very peaceful as it lies in the forest.
Although this cemetery hasn't been used in well over 100 years and most grave sites can no longer been seen, there are wooden crosses to mark some of the gravesides. Over the entrance to the cemetery is the sign "Bell Cemetery 1870- 1989 Restoration by Presque Isle Lions Pres. D. Johnson Baugh Besser Manufacturing George Stevens Coordinator Judy Kimball.
