This is off Illinois Route 96, also called the GREAT RIVER ROAD, following along the Mississippi River. Tull Cemetery is between Pontoosuc and Niota, Illinois. I followed one of those highway signs denoting a historic cemetery, kept seeing a lot of those, wondering what makes any cemetery “historic” or not and it was a good, chill day so I thought I would meander around to check it out.
down the country road a bit where I found the tossed xmas decorations then branching off to another less of a road, seeming more a driveway- that did lead straight to a house, barn and other buildings..branching off again right before it to an even lesser road by now just a set of tire tracks and through an open gate to this opening in the surrounding woods..
I still don’t know the answer to the historic question but it is a well-kept, peaceful place, properly feeling rooted in another time.
