Cemeteries Along the Byway

Cemeteries within approximately 20 miles each side of the Byway have been included in the map. In some cases, as with the Marie Sandoz gravesite, we have gone beyond that corridor because a grave had particular historic significance. For more information about these and other cemeteries in the region, go to http://www.findagrave.com/ and click on “find a cemetery” in the right-hand column under “Find Graves.”  Or click on a community below for more information on a specific cemetery.
