Cemetery description

large but only a few headstones remain. it is situated behind a FRATERNITY! Weeds cover it. there are no signs for contact information.

Other Problems

I think the biggest downfall to this cemetery is that it is right behind some fraternities here in Reno.

Previous Contacts

Just trying to locate plot records and find out who owns property. The caretaker of a cemetery adjacent (in good condition) said that the University of Nevada Reno had purchased the property. There was a story of someone buying it to move the bodies and build on it. I guess that fell through. It is situated in such a spot that few would see its neglect except for mostly college students.

Current Status

I am checking in to plot plans and have already transcribed the few headstones there are without permission because the gates were wide open and NOBODY cares! I took some pictures. Not all the headstones but I will be back. I have a few queries in to the libraries.
