Cemetery notes and/or description:
The I.O.O.F. Cemetery is located on a hillside just north of Nara Visa on the west side of Highway #402. Since you go across private land to get to it, the owner simply asks that if you visit this cemetery that you please close the gates. It has been mistakenly rumored as being the Catholic Cemetery, but this is not true, and it has both Catholics and Non-Catholics buried in it. Some call it the North Cemetery.

There is what is called the Potter's Field on the western end of the cemetery. There are somewhere between 6 and 8 graves in it. Legend says one was a "lady of the evening", two were shooting victims in the saloons, and one a probable suicide victim on a train coming from Dalhart, TX. We don't know about the others and no names are known.
