Otter Tail County Cemeteries with Links to Google Maps

Here at the Otter Tail County Historical Society staff and volunteers work hard to burial information current in our more than 250 cemeteries. In our database we have 76,669 burials listed which grows daily. What follows is a list of the cemeteries located in Otter Tail County listed by Township. If you want us to check to see if we have a specific burial, we will do that for you for $5/each look-up.

In 2011 volunteers started taking photograph of tombstones for our collection. We are now linking the tombstone photos to our online index. Because of the size of our county this will be a long-term project. If you would like to help out by taking photographs please contact Kathy Evavold.

Many of these cemeteries are linked to Google Maps.
