Posted: July 18, 2017 by extremehistory in Uncategorized

We’re excited to announce the completion of our work at the Nevada City Cemetery in Montana. This 4 year project included GIS mapping, grave documentation and the creation of an online database (see link below). A plaque will soon be erected at the site honoring the 200 + unmarked graves, and we will be hosting a community day in Virginia City in September to share info about the cemetery and the work we did there. Big thanks to all who participated with special thanks to our team: Bekah Shields, John Olson, Tessa Swiltzer, Riley Auge, Nancy Mahoney, Elaine Hale, Leslie Crismond and Marsha Small. Also much thanks to Kory Sutherland for website develeopment, the Montana History Foundation for funding the project and to the Montana Heritage Commission for their support. Great work, everyone!!
