Czech Cemetery

The Abie Czech cemetery remains as the only reminder of the original site of Abie’s first settlement. The original Church and Cemetery were built on a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside, providing a much similar look and feel as the “Old Country” from which the first settlers came. The town and its church were moved to their present location in 1887. The Czech cemetery houses a beautiful, large cross which stands watch over the tombstone of Father Joseph Koutek, the second pastor of Abie Parish.
