This cemetery is located just inside the entrance into Fort Bayard on the left. Not to be confused with Fort Bayard National Cemetery which is also on the grounds. It appears that this is a "potters field" type cemetery, based on the uniformity of most of the grave markers. Given the age of the individuals buried here, and its proximity to the state owned nursing home nearby, they were probably residents.
The cemetery is encircled by large stones that have been painted white, but is otherwise untended, with markers half buried in soil, and tall weeds. Most of the markers are small concrete blocks with metal nameplates, some of these damaged or plates missing. There are numerous graves with only funeral home markers and time has erased the majority of those. This Cemetery is still in use.
