Wyuka Historical Foundation supports the preservation, interpretation, and public use of Nebraska‘s historic state cemetery.
Preservation: Preservation and restoration efforts for the monuments and buildings at Wyuka are a principal focus of the Foundation. Preserving the beautiful landscape, the streets, and the other historic elements of Wyuka Cemetery will assure that future generations of Nebraskans and visitors from throughout the country can enjoy this unique property. Wyuka Cemetery is listed on the National Registrar of Historic Places and is a Nebraska State Arboretum Historic Landscape.
Public Use: Wyuka is a state property, and the Historical Foundation encourages the community to enjoy the grounds as a place for walking and enjoying nature. The Stables, Rudge Chapel and the Garden Room are used for weddings, concerts, and community meetings as well as memorial services.
Holocaust Memorial Clean-Up
Recently, members of the Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity were at the Memorial for a good Spring cleaning. The “Sammies” swept, sprayed grass that was growing between some of the bricks, and cleaned the Memorial, picked up debris, checked the brochure supplies and holders – in other words continue to help insure the Nebraska State Holocaust Memorial is kept in good shape. Their work, along with that provided by the Wyuka Grounds Crew keeps the Memorial in good condition and something which our State can be proud.
Thank you Lincoln for supporting Wyuka!
