|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Nevada State Prison (NSP) Burial grounds are located on a hillside between the Nevada State Prison (closed in 2012), and the Warm Springs Correctional Facility (active prison). The Burial Grounds are not accessible by the public without permission from the Warden.
The NSP Burial Grounds is the resting place of prisoners who died while incarcerated and whose bodies were not claimed by their friends or family. Some of internments are for prisoners who were executed in the United State's first legally sanctioned gas chamber. There are eleven marked graves and the site has the potential for more unmarked graves. The tablet style stone markers were carved by inmates.
