Search Moslem Cemetery:

The Assyrian Muslim Cemetery near Ross is the site of the first mosque in the nation and was the only Muslim cemetery in North Dakota for 90 years. The Syrian settlers in this area began arriving in 1902 and came with the same dreams for living better lives that most homesteaders shared. Upon arrival, they experienced the same hardships, conditions, and similar successes as other settlers. This cemetery is significant as it is the only place remaining in the area that distinctly testifies to the culture of this particular group of people.
