Bendle Cemetery, operated by Clayton Township, was established in the early 1800s with the oldest burial record dating 1819. Towering Oaks, majestic Maples, grandiose Catalpa and serene Pines maintain a quiet canopy over the cemetery.

“The cemetery is well-maintained and evokes nostalgia with so many large trees amid the headstones. The u-shaped driveway provides easy access to the entire cemetery” –
