The Osborne City Cemetery opened in 1879 at the corner of Eleventh Street and U.S. Highway 24 West. Veterans ranging from the Mexican War though the Vietnam War are buried here. Noted buffalo hunter Jeff Durfey and Howard Ruede, author of the celebrated book “Sod-House Days,” both rest here as well. A kiosk in the north-central part of the cemetery lists those in repose and allows for easy locating of graves.
A special Memorial Day service is held annually in the cemetery.
