Follow the presentation linked for an intersting historical tour through Wydanotte County's Cemetaries. Through this presentation we will show you the history that is buried in some of the oldest cemeteries in Wyandotte County. Some of them are still active, with people still being buried along side of their loved ones, while others have been closed or abandoned.
Back in the 1980s the State of Kansas passed a law which required each county to be responsible for their abandoned and closed cemeteries. The Wyandotte County Museum now holds the records for these cemeteries and the Parks and Recreation Department is responsible for their maintenance
