Red Oak Grove CHurch and CemeteryWelcome

Welcome to The Red Oak Grove Church and Cemetery website.  ROGCC is situated on ten plus acres outside of Tipton, Iowa.  We are very proud of our site which has a well manicured park like grounds and is bordered on one side with Rock Creek.  We are in hopes our website links will better acquaint you with us, especially our photo gallery, purchase a gravesite, history and find-a-grave.

Mission Statement

The Red Oak Grove Church & Cemetery is a perpetual care cemetery that is dedicated to its upkeep and preservation

Vision

The vision of Red Oak Grove Church & Cemetery is to further enhance the park-like setting of the church and cemetery by encompassing nearby Rock Creek and Red Oak Park (founded in 1894), through the following actions:

  • Revise Red Oak Grove Church and Cemetery's National Register of Historic Places designation to include Red Oak Park
  • Acquire approximately five acres of land lying between the cemetery and park, making the two entities contiguous;
  • Build walking paths and additional cement driveways to access the cemetery;
  • Clean and reforest the timbered area west of the church to accommodate a labyrinth, walking paths along Rock Creek, and paths linking the cemetery and Red Oak Park.
