In our travels, my wife and I have visited many historical cemeteries from Arlington to Gettysburg to VIcksburg to Hollywood in Richmond, Virginia. Add the Mormon Pioneer Cemetery to the list. Located at 3215 State Street in present-day Florence at the north end of Omaha, Nebraska, it is the burial site of hundreds of Mormon pioneers who lived in Winter... 更多
We are so glad we got to visit here. A very sacred place indeed. Especially when you think of the hardships these great pioneer folks endured and the sacrifice they made! A must see when in the area!

We saw the cemetery as part of a visit to the nearby museum. This is a really interesting touch of true American history and a reminder of how hard it was for those pioneer folks trying to get to Utah and stopped by the cold. Recommend seeing this with the museum. Well worth your time

Very tranquil and well kept, the story of how the Mormons developed their Winter Headquarters en route to Utah and the toll the winter took on their numbers. Across the street at the Mormon Welcome Center there is a bronze statue depicting a pioneer family.
If you love old cemeteries, this is a treasure. There are original grave markers from pioneers, and also a beautiful memorial to all the pioneers who died while living at Winter Quaters. A beautiful and peaceful place.
This is a great stop if coming through Omaha. Great historical story and beautiful Cemetery next to Mormon Church.
