North Platte Cemetery

North Platte Cemetery Picture

The Public Service Department is responsible for the management of the North Platte Cemetery located on West Rodeo Road (Highway 30). Lyle Minshull, Director of the Parks/Cemetery Division has charge of the day to day operation of the cemetery. At present the cemetery is on 30 developed acres, with an additional 15 acres undeveloped for future needs.


In the late 1860's this area (previously Fourth and Locust Streets) was considered the outskirts of North Platte. At a meeting held on December 13, 1872 the North Platte Cemetery Association was established and five acres of land were purchased at a cost of $20 per acre. A second meeting was held on June 13, 1873, and the plot of land north of Rodeo Road was divided into lots, which were offered at $10 each.


In 1884, an additional 10 acres was purchased next to the first 5 acres from Mrs. William F. Cody. Prairie fires destroyed the plantings in the cemetery several times. In 1913, the North Platte Cemetery was fenced. A turf maintenance program has been established in recent years and underground sprinklers have been installed.


The cemetery has many markers and monuments with historical significance.
