Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located at 33rd & State Street in what is called "Historic Florence" Nebraska. In 1846, Winter Quarters Settlement was established by Brigham Young of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It became Florence in 1854 before it was annexed to Omaha.

Approximately 4000 pioneers spent the winter there waiting to move west in the spring. About 600 of them died on the Nebraska bank of the Missouri River with countless others dying on the Iowa side and at outer settlements.

The Winter Quarters Pioneer Cemetery is next to the Winter Quarters Temple of the LDS Church which is located at 8283 West 34th Street.

The memorial for Winter Quarters Pioneer Cemetery, aka Mormon Pioneer Cemetery, was created by findagrave member # 46997739 ~ history4sure.
