formerly Mount Hope
Until 1890 Sheridan had no cemetery. Individuals were buried
"on the farm". In 1890 a group of businessmen formed the Mount Hope Cemetery
Association, and began the first cemetery. Many of the original plots sold for $5. Many
individuals who had been buried around the city were moved to the cemetery at that time.
Eventually the City of Sheridan purchased the cemetery, and some
adjoining property, and the grounds are now home to about 19,000 souls, including all of
the Lodges' burials.
In the late 1970s, while doing some road work on East 6th
Street, the graves of a woman and child were discovered. The bodies were moved to the
cemetery, and their identity was never established.
About 1997 the City began computerizing their cemetery
records. The employees of the City of Sheridan have worked very hard to get over 100 years
worth of records computerized, and this project could never have been possible without
We gratefully acknowledge their hard work, and would like to thank:

The cemetery did not
originally keep track of plots owned by fraternal organizations, such as the
Elks, Masons, etc, until just recently, when they imported the records from the
various organizations into their database. In some instances, there was
conflicting information, and they have made notes of this.
The original records were handwritten on index cards, and sometimes that
information conflicted with headstones, or other records. They have also
made notes of these differences.
If you have information that corrects these records, please
send me a
note, and I will forward it along.
