The Rice Cemetery sits in a field off the roadway in Three Brothers

The Rice Cemetery is located off State Highway 5 North in the small Three Brothers Community. It is across the highway from the Three Brothers Cemetery on private pasture land. There will be a large metal gate on the East side of Highway 5. The cemetery is located about 400 yards down the trail beyond this gate. The gate is sometimes locked, so you have to climb the gate and walk to the cemetery. The cemetery cannot be seen from the highway. The cemetery is fenced and maintained. It is still an active cemetery. Burials date from early 1900's and are from the Rice, Gunter, and Strong Families.  There is no cemetery sign.
