Prairie Dale Cemetery

Directions: On U.S. Hwy 283 turn East at DD Road (13 miles north of intersection of 283 and U.S. Hwy 24 in Hill City; or 1 mile south of Norton-Graham county line). Drive 6 miles to 330 Avenue. Turn North for one-half mile. Turn East on DD Road again. Drive 6 miles to 390 Avenue. Turn North for approximately one-half mile. The road dead-ends with the cemetery on the East. A word of caution: the last half mile is without sand, rock or shale so in the event of recent rain, a 4 wheel drive vehicle may be required.


The "Other Information" column may contain information not on the marker as well as data garnered through the transcriber's research.
