Boot Hill, Ogallala’s Pioneer Cemetery, established in the 1870s, was restored by the Ogallala Jaycees in 1963 in cooperation with the Keith County Historical Society.
Although the bodies were removed to the “new” Ogallala cemetery in the early 1900s, three coffins and bodies were discovered during excavation work in 1978. The bodies were later reburied at the Ogallala Cemetery.
