“Not what I expected.”
Review of Boot Hill Cemetery

Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is a little 20 minute stop for history's sake. It is small, on a hill, but in the middle of a subdivision. That was unexpected. Glad we did it, but it depends on how much you expect. Looking at a picture just might do unless you are a history buff.

This is an old cemetery in the town of Ogallala, Nebraska. It is overgrown with native plants as it may have been in the 1800's. Some of the graves are marked, many are not. It has a very steep incline so beware you must walk up hill a bit. Interesting history and worth a quick stop.

I was shocked at the appearence of Boothill. There was no grass anywhere just overgrown weeds. Most of the graves have been removed. It appears no maintenance has been done in a long time. No handicap accessibilty.

Historians will love it. Haven't been there for many years but it's a great place to stop, get out of your car, stretch your legs and breath some clean air.

There really wasn't much of anything to see here except the statue at the top of the hill, and the informational display at the bottom of the hill.

I'm not sure it was worth going out there since most of the bodies have been removed, and the remaining markers are uninteresting and in poor condition. Certainly not as interesting as the Boot Hill in Tombstone. But if it's a nice day, and you're into the history of it, you might not mind the short drive out there to see it.
