It is good to see an historic site under some preservation. As genealogy buffs, we appreciate any amount of data from old cemeteries. We were concerned about the tattered American flag flying over the site.

a quick interesting little stop for a break and a walk around. Neat statue. Some interesting stories. There is a board at the bottom the hill with a sheet with a 'tour' of some of the interesting gravestones.

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.

The Ogallala cemetery is one of many 'boot hill' cemeteries in the west. Pamphlets and several plaques are onsite, giving the story of some of the people who were buried here. You'll spend less than an hour here. But it's worth a visit, if you're...More
