Wyuka Cemetery's 140th Anniversary Celebration

We at PSR are big fans of Wyuka Cemetery. It's such a rich source of Great Plains history, as well as a current cultural center. Which is why we're pretty excited about Wyuka's 140th birthday party!

Where: 3600 O St., Lincoln, NE
When: Sunday, October 4th, 1:00-5:30 PM
Free admission

There's going to be all kinds of interesting events all afternoon: historian and writer Ed Zimmer will be leading a tour and giving out free copies of his new Wyuka guidebook; Flatwater Shakespeare will be performing; there will be a band, a film, a photography exhibit, and even more!

You can get more information here.

P.S. Did you know you can search online for individual grave locations at Wyuka? What a great tool for Lincoln-area history enthusiasts!
