In our travels, my wife and I have visited many historical cemeteries from Arlington to Gettysburg to VIcksburg to Hollywood in Richmond, Virginia. Add the Mormon Pioneer Cemetery to the list. Located at 3215 State Street in present-day Florence at the north end of Omaha, Nebraska, it is the burial site of hundreds of Mormon pioneers who lived in Winter... More

We are so glad we got to visit here. A very sacred place indeed. Especially when you think of the hardships these great pioneer folks endured and the sacrifice they made! A must see when in the area!

The site is very clean, a smooth operation: you are greeted by a Mormon missionary who escorts you around the museum. The visit begins with a 15-minue video about the Mormons and their historic trek across Nebraska in 1846-7. The missionary did ask us whether we owned a Book of Mormon (fortunately, my companion does) and whether Jesus Christ has... More

We saw the cemetery as part of a visit to the nearby museum. This is a really interesting touch of true American history and a reminder of how hard it was for those pioneer folks trying to get to Utah and stopped by the cold. Recommend seeing this with the museum. Well worth your time

For history buffs, especially those who are Mormon, this cemetery is worth a visit. Very tranquil and well kept, the story of how the Mormons developed their Winter Headquarters en route to Utah and the toll the winter took on their numbers. Across the street at the Mormon Welcome Center there is a bronze statue depicting a pioneer family.

If you love old cemeteries, this is a treasure. There are original grave markers from pioneers, and also a beautiful memorial to all the pioneers who died while living at Winter Quaters. A beautiful and peaceful place.

I visited this cemetery because I love visiting cemeteries. At first glance, it looked like there were only a handful of grave markers and they were not as striking as I was expecting. However, after visiting the visitors centre I learned that most of the markers were made of wood and therefore long gone. Additionally, the winter quarters were a... More

I come to Omaha a few times a year on business but haven't had a chance to see Winter Quarters until today. I got off my flight and at the last minute, decided to look it up and head there before I headed to my hotel for a week long business trip. It was such a great way to start... More
