“cradling the bodies of patients buried there over a 75-year period”
The unmarked cemetery occupies a 2.8-acre plot on the northeast corner of the old Topeka State Hospital grounds and cradles the bodies of patients buried there over a 75-year period. The cemetery, which measures about 150 yards by 50 yards and is about 100 yards west of the 100 block of N.W. MacVicar, was assigned to the Kansas Department of Administration after the hospital closed. No signs, stonework, paths or roads mark the area as a cemetery. Of the 1,157 graves there, only 16 have headstones. The 2000 Kansas Legislature authorized construction of a memorial for people buried in the cemetery, including a plaque identifying the memorial, fencing to go around the cemetery and the inscription of the names of the dead
Hard one to find. They are doing a lot of construction.
