The Underwood Cemetery is located on the property of the City of Madison Transfer Station.
Hours: Monday - Friday, 8 am - 4 pm; Saturday, 8 am - noon. Closed Sundays.
Directions start at S.R. 421 & S.R. 62: Go west on S.R. 62 toward North Madison. At the first light is the intersection of S.R. 62 & Ivy Tech Drive (Walmart is on your right hand side), turn left onto Ivy Tech Drive (south). At the first curve (few hundred feet) on Ivy Tech Road, turn left onto Hannah Drive into the City of Madison Transfer Station. Take the drive to the right, which takes you into the transfer station. Use the left lane, not the weigh lane. Stop & let someone know that you are going back to the cemetery.
Once inside the gate, follow the drive to the right. Continue on around the building till the road straightens. The cemetery is on the left on the hill. But, go on up the drive and take the path to the right as the drive is a one-way that loops back around. (You will pass large compost piles and end back on the left drive shown in the previous picture). Park beside the cemetery entrance. The entrance (on the right side) is marked as the Underwood Cemetery and wooden steps are now in place.
In the spring, the first view of the cemetery was of daffodils. The majority of the tombstones are to the left. There are several field stones marked with white flags throughout the cemetery.
Area shots of cemetery:

There are more stones separate from the main group of the cemetery, on the south side and near the entrance. Several field stones are scattered throughout.
