Long Description:
St. Joseph Church and Cemetery in Apple Creek, Missouri. Apple Creek is a village with church property, cemetery and a few houses. There is a nice stations of the cross that leads from the side of the old church down a hill to an outside sinkhole, shaded shrine area. The shrine area has a waterfall and next to an outdoor altar with benches in a natural amphitheatre. Very, very beautiful. Area below is called the "Lady of St Joseph Shrine".

This is a very interesting church cemetery in that it is in front of the church instead of behind it or on the side of it. The cemetery is literally only 25 feet from the front door of the church. There is a road between the church and the cemetery. Parts of the cemetery is shaded.

Although off the beaten track, I highly recommend a stop here.

I couldn't find a sign for the church or cemetery so I used a plaque for the Shrine located behind the church.
