Prairie Cemeteries

Hope Cemetery just outside of Arkansas City is like many small cemeteries in Kansas. This quiet little piece of earth sits just a few miles outside of town across the dirt road from a small Church surrounded by miles and miles of prairie.

What is most interesting about the Kansas “country” cemeteries I have posted thus far to my blog is they all have noticeable similarities:

🌳They are well manicured and fences, gates, signage is in good order.

🇺🇸The American Flag is flying

💧A pump well for visitors to use for watering plants and flower

⚱️A memorial marker, stone, or statue to honor the military

⛪️An out building of some sort for gathering

🚮Barrel trash cans

…………And all are so very peaceful* other Kansas cemeteries posted on my blog: Andover cemetery, Hoss cemetery, Sedgwick KS. Cemetery, Greenwood cemetery.*

From grief came inspiration..... I created these crosses out of frustration years ago when trying to find something to decorate family graves. Stores only had grave decorations available around Memorial Day and everything was costly and impersonal. I enjoy creating these crosses and I am happy to personalize a cross for your loved one. My crosses are made with recycled materials & packaging is simple and recycled. Floralmemorials.Etsy.com Floralmemorials.scottsmarketplace.com
