GORDON NEBRASKA CEMETERY

 

We visited this cemetery on July 4, 2000. This little cemetery sits on a hill southwest of Gordon. The trees were obviously planted quite some time ago, as they are mature. We think the City of Gordon maintains the cemetery, and they do a good job. Near the center of the cemetery is a small building with lot maps on the outside of the building. We have family stones there that date back to 1888.
