After finally stumbling upon this site I found it interesting. It would have been better had original grave markers been left in place. The resident kitty cat was quite friendly. Nice stop over for the history. Not enough signs to direct you to location.

Nice place to visit did the tour on are own but would recommend taking a guided tour since we did not know all the history behind the cemetery. We only knew about Buffalo Bill and Calamity Jane.

With all the hipe I have been brought up with regarding boot hill, it was a little disappointing when we actually got there. That being said, when in Ogallala, it is a must see - just for the experience.

Was a bit disapointed.....there just isn't much there and what is in not authentic...nice statute...a few stories of what was there but all "grave sites" are "restored" and graves were moved years ago

The dangers of getting to Boot Hill are hardly worth it. The locals have no respect for speed limits, stop signs, the right of way, or pedestrians, so you may need a Boot Hill trying to get to this one. There is some historical information,...More
