1. Pioneers Marker
Inscription. Dedicated to those stalwart pioneers who forged an oasis out of the desert sands

The St. Thomas Cemetery was established in the 1860s in the town of St. Thomas, Nevada. Anticipating inundation of the town by the waters of Lake Mead, the graves were moved to this point in 1935. Only past residents of the buried towns of St. Thomas and Kaolin and their decendants are buried here.

What sorrow fills the hearts of us
Who know we cannot now return
To walk the shady streets of long ago.
Afton Hannig
