Antioch Cemetery

Posey Township
Switzerland County, Indiana
From Wanda Morefords Cemetery Lists

The Antioch Methodist Episcopal Church was probably organized about 1820 and may have been the first Methodist Society organized in Posey Township.  It was located by the cemetery which carries its name, but the church has been gone for some time.  The cemetery is on Antioch Road appropriately four tenths of a mile from State Route 250.
