Traditionally known as the Cuming City Cemetery, this eleven-acre tract of land was set aside in 1976 primarily as a preserve for native vegetation. Never plowed, this prairie looks much like it did to the Indians and to the first white men who settled Nebraska in the 1850's. Grasses such as big and little bluestem, Indian Grass, and side-oats grama still grow here. Now owned by the Dana College, the site was acquired with the assistance of The Nature Conservancy and the Cuming City Cemetery Association.
