BENNETT BUTTES
CEMETERY
CLARK, WYOMING

The Bennett Buttes Cemetery had it's beginnings with the arrival of Clark's first homesteader residents. It's first burial is believed to be Miranda Weathermon in 1909, although two earlier burials in the area were later moved here.
In 1910 the Cody Enterprise suggested the Clark residents "fence the graveyard so cows don't trample over the graves. This was accomplished with donated posts and local labor. In 1913 fourteen residents formed the Bennett Buttes Cemetery Association, and on May 3, 1915 the former government land was deeded over to them to be used as a cemetery. In 1985 Clark residents circulated a petition to create a cemetery district, and in May 1985 the Bennett Buttes Cemetery District was approved. Tax money soon was available to transform the long neglected cemetery. A well was drilled ,sagebrush removed, and grass and trees planted. In 1990 the chain length fence was installed. Today Clark residents take pride in their beautiful cemetery.
