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.

This cometary is a MUST SEE when visiting Omaha. Make sure you take time too tour the visitor center across the street. Tours are conducted by very knowledgable young adults. That can easily answer all your questions.
