Highland Cemetery

About this Cemetery

Highland Cemetery, also referred to as Nall Cemetery, is tucked away in a quaint residential neighborhood in Prairie Village, KS, near the state and city line of Kansas City, Missouri. In the 1850s, this land was part of the Shawnee Nation reservation. When the Shawnees were later removed to Oklahoma, pioneer brothers John and Thomas Nall and their families squatted out 200 acres and became prosperous farmers. Half of this one-acre cemetery was owned by John Nall, the other by a friend and neighbor, John A White.
