Gove County Kansas

Pyramid View Cemetery


NE 1/4 of Section 17 Township 15 Range 31

This cemetery is located 2 miles south and 1 1/2 miles west of the Chalk Pyramids. It is 25 miles south of Grinnell and 8 1/2 miles west. Portions of the road are definitely "good-weather" road.

Kenneth Russell believes that two acres were given for this cemetery; however, only one acre is fenced in (1986). The land was given by Joe Russell in 1908.
