Downtown Burial Mound

A beautiful spot in the middle of the city. The wooden steps from the street are rotten and unnavigable, but the cemetery itself was pretty well tended. I enjoyed wandering and looking at the gravestones, but then again, I really like old cemeteries!

Huron Indian Cemetery

Indian burial ground in the center of city. The burial mound stood in the way of proposed widening of the main street, Minnesota Ave. so a deviation was made in the street. Bounded by the School Board Bldg., Huron Office Bldg. and Scottish Rite Temple.
