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.*
