will show you where individuals have been
buried and information about how some of
the settlers lived.

 

Appropriate clothing and footwear is encouraged
as this involves uneven ground, exposure to sunlight,
and crossing a busy street.

 

Visitors are welcome to explore the cemetery by picking up a map and key from the front desk of the Wiggins Store (2). Please dispose of trash properly and treat those buried with respect. Do not lean, climb, or step on grave areas. Please lock the gates and return the key when you are finished.
