|The Wayland Cemetery was formed around 1882 when land was donated by a local fraternal organization for school and cemetery purposes. The oldest marked grave is that of Lurita Williams who died on May 13, 1882. Heirs of the land can still be buried here free of charge (regardless of where they live.)|
The cemetery is located behind the old school house.
