Wyuka Cemetery and Wyuka Historical Foundation
Wyuka Cemetery was created in 1869 by the legislature of the new
state of Nebraska to provide a burial place in the capital city.
The cemetery was designed as a "rural cemetery", a large,
landscaped, park-like style that became popular in the 19th
century. The entire property was placed on the National Register
of Historic Places in 1982 as an outstanding example of the
beautiful rural cemetery style. Wyuka Historical Foundation was
founded in 1997 with the sole purpose of supporting the
preservation and public use of Wyuka Cemetery.
