Cemeteries in Kansas
Kansas may get its fame from "The Wizard of Oz," but the state is also known as the breadbasket of our nation. The state's expanse of plains and prairie make for some beautiful and peaceful cemetery options.
Choosing a Cemetery in Kansas
The above factors aside, people choose cemeteries in Kansas for many personal reasons, including proximity to family, amenities such as gardens for religious reflection or memorial benches, and aesthetics.
For example, the humid climate of Hutchinson creates a fertile environment for flowers, and is one of the reasons the 16 gardens found in Fairlawn Burial Park are so lush and beautiful.
Wichita is the largest city in the state and possibly the most rich with history. Evidence of communities in this area date back to 3000 B.C., and stories about residents of the region range from the Spanish Expedition to WWII. Its cemeteries are equally steeped in history. Old Mission Wichita Park, dating back to the early 1900s, has a pond and a variety of statues. Wichita's White Chapel Memorial Gardens features a reproduction of The Last Supper, a life-size statue of Christ, and a tower inspired by one in Germany built as the first of its kind in the western hemisphere.
