Quiet, deadly quiet! Not much to say about a cemetery. It was very well kept and clean--as is the entire city!

Located in the center of town, it's an easy place to visit. Worth your time. Clear signage and information on the people buried there.

Plenty of historic markers about the lives of those buried here. Great place to learn something & honor those who reside here permanently. Also cool to know that the playground outside the cemetery served as the dueling ground in years past.
