1. Fairview Cemetery Marker
Inscription. Five-month-old Victor Nordhem was laid to rest in February 1900, on land bought by Alison J. Adams for an individual burial plot. In 1908, Adams deeded additional acreage to the Fairview Cemetery Association. Decoration Day, later Memorial Day, was a day for grave decoration, music, speeches and activities. More than 1200 marked and unmarked burials have been recorded. Features include markers made of concrete, marble, granite and cypress wood. Dozens of military veterans are interred here, as well as settlers and descendants from the Japanese colony begun at Webster in 1903. The cemetery conveys many diverse and interesting stories of the past.
