Geocache Description:

This one is not handicap accessible. There are a flight of stairs getting to the cache and the trail is woodchipped.

from the Nebraska Historical Marker
Boot Hill
Boot Hill was the final resting place for many early westerners who helped make Ogallala a booming cowtown in the 1870's and 1880's. These people, the cowboys, settlers, and drifters, came to Ogallala when the railroad and the Texas Trail opened a new market for the Texas Longhorn.
Although one of the first burials here was a mother and child, many came by running afoul the law--some for stealing another man's horse. Others where killed by the re-fighting the Civil War or the questioning the gambler's winning hand, in July of 1879 three cowhands were buried in a single day, victims of the sheriff's guns. Another man, "Rattlesnake Ed," was buried here after he was shot down over a nine dollar bet in a Monte fame in the Cowboys Rest, a local saloon.
Most were buried with their boots on, thus the name Boot Hill. Their bodies, placed in canvas sacks, were lowered into shallow graves and marked with a wooden headboard. Some of the bodies have since been removed-only the unknown or unclaimed remain in the western cemetery.

Check out the new statute and the graves. There is also a time capsule buried here which is to be exhumed in 2084. It is a beautiful view of Ogallala.
