Contributed by Mary Gebro, Sep 06, 2006, last edited Jul 28, 2010 [sunshine@wah.midco.net]. Total records = 109.

To reach cemetery from Wahpeton take Hwy 13 west for 3.5 miles. Turn left or south onto 177th Ave SE and continue for one mile. Cemetery will be on the right at the intersection with 18th St SE.

This is the first settlers cemetery and dates back to about 1865. The last burial was in 2002 according to the existing stones.

The condition of this cemetery is very good, but many tombstones are broken and/or appear to be falling. It is maintained by volunteers.

I walked and read this cemetery on Jul 07, 2006. This includes all existing and legible headstone and marker readings.
