Had read reviews and was looking forward to visiting this cemetery. The reality was disappointing. Interesting to read the tombstones but the cemetery is run down and dilapidated. Very hard to recommend to anyone but the keenest.

This is an historic cemetery with quite a few burials of legendary Western characters such as John Wesley Harden. It's an interesting place to visit and one way to learn the history of the local area.
