Historical Mt. Allen Cemetery Tour

History

The Historical Cemetery Map (PDF) shows the grave markers for twelve individuals who are noteworthy in the history of Hays, have rather interesting stories or have unique looking grave markers.  Visitors are welcome to access the cemetery on the south side near 26th and Pine. As you stroll through the cemetery you might want to look for the grave marker showing the person with the earliest date of birth and those who were born on your same date of birth.  In text of this section, Hays was established as "Hays City" in 1867, but the word "City" was officially dropped from the name Hays City in 1885.
