(Old) Langdon Cemetery
Langdon Township
Langdon, Reno County, Kansas

Old Langdon Cemetery is located between Arlington, KS & Langdon, KS & north of Kansas State Highway 61. From Arlington, KS go west on K-61 about 5 miles & then north on Sterling Road about 1 mile. From Langdon, KS go east on K-61 about 4 miles & then north on Sterling Road about 1 mile. The cemetery sits on the west (left)  side of the road. Sterling Road is the road that goes to Kanza Camp so look for this camp road sign from either direction.

This little cemetery looked to be well cared for. The area was well maintained & the old headstones appeared  to have been restored.

Quoted from the book "Cemetery Records for Reno County Kansas 1865 - 1978" "Old Langdon Cemetery was used by the community before Maple Hill Cemetery was opened. It can be seen by going 4 miles east and 2 1/2 north of Langdon in Langdon Township in the SE Corner of NE1/4 Sec.12-25-9. The land was set aside for burial purposes by Julius Elliott on 18 December 1878. There are only
about 25 marked graves in this little cemetery."
