Fairview Cemetery, Scottsbluff
About Fairview Cemetery
Fairview Cemetery is a 40-acre facility established in 1901. It is the largest cemetery in the Panhandle of Nebraska. The founders of Fairview Cemetery, with a broad vision of the future City of Scottsbluff, wisely selected the present large Cemetery site and laid out upon its rolling hills a plan for the future Cemetery so complete in every detail that it has scarcely been modified in the succeeding years.
Fairview Cemetery is owned and operated by the City of Scottsbluff, Nebraska, and is governed by a Cemetery Board composed of six members who are appointed by the Mayor of the City with the consent and approval of the City Council. The members of this Board have never drawn salaries for their services nor made a dollar profit out of the enterprise. They have given freely of their valuable time and skills throughout the years entirely without compensation.
Fairview Cemetery is regarded as one of the most beautiful Cemeteries in this section of the State, and every lot owner should be interested in knowing that everything possible is being done to maintain and to enhance its sacredness and beauty throughout the future years. In order to accomplish this, it has been necessary to adopt certain rules and regulations governing the Cemetery and to enforce them, since any deviation from the rules would jeopardize the perpetuity and beauty of the Cemetery. We trust that lot owners will appreciate the fact that these rules are adopted for their protection and that they will at all times cooperate with the Cemetery Board in their observation of these rules. At Fairview, we strive to improve and innovate our services while offering a clean, safe and aesthetically-pleasing environment.
