Wyuka Cemetery

S 19th Street
Nebraska City, NE
Unusual granite carved headstones

Rich in unusual tombstones, this small-town burial ground has a rolltop desk gravestone, and a marker shaped like a law book. There are also quite a few tree motifs, thanks to the presence of the man who started Arbor Day, J. Sterling Morton, and his descendants.
