Konginkankaan vanha hautausmaa

1891 vihittiin hautausmaa Pohjoisniemeen lähelle nykyistä uimarantaa. Kirkon viereen kuivalle kangasmaalle oli jo haudattu väkeä, mutta uusi terveysasetus määräsi siirtämään hautaamisen kauemmaksi ihmisasutuksesta.

Hautausmaan käyttö lopetettiin parin vuoden jälkeen maaperän märkyyden vuoksi. Ruumiinavauksia varten rakennettu leikkaushuone purettiin 1965.

Jäljellä on enää vain 1970 pystytetty muistokivi (jossa virheellisesti kerrotaan hautausmaan olevan Konginkankaan ensimmäinen!). Hautaaminen siirtyi takaisin kirkon viereen 1894.

Lähde (29.5.2012)

Kätkön lähistöllä sijaitsee Pohjoishiekkana tunnettu uimaranta grillikatoksineen ja pukukoppeineen. Kätkö on mikrokokoinen ja sisältää lokikirjan ja kätkötiedotteen mutta ei kynää. Kätkö ei peity kovin paksuun lumikerrokseen, mutta saattaa jäätyä kiinni paikalleen.

The old graveyard of Konginkangas

In 1891 a cemetery was established in Pohjoisniemi, Konginkangas. Burials had already been made next to the church but a new health regulation ordered that burials should be moved further away from inhabited areas. However, the cemetery was abandoned after a couple of years due to soil wetness.

All that is remaining from the cemetery is just a memorial stone put up in 1970 (which incorrectly describes the cemetery as Konginkangas' first!). Burial was transferred back to the church in 1894.

There is a popular beach nearby the cache with dressing rooms and a shelter. The cache is micro-sized and includes a log book and a cache note. Bring your own pen. The cache does not become covered by a thick layer of snow but it may freeze in its position.
