Lidy Hot Springs Cemetery – An Update
The cemetery at Lidy Hot Springs, previously unmarked, was located and fenced in 2010 as part of a community effort to mark old and abandoned cemeteries in Clark County. Grave markers were installed for the 5 known burials. No attempt was made to mark the actual location of these graves, because no cemetery records exist that would reveal them. If you can provide more information on any of these burials, please contact us.
