Pleasant  Prairie  Cemetery
 
Section 20 - 256th Street - Union Township - McCook County - South Dakota

 


In 1883 a group of mostly Norwegian settlers organized the Evangelical Lutheran Church, the name later being changed to Pleasant Prairie Lutheran Church.  Services were help in memers homes until a church was constructed in 1889.

There were plans to enlarge the church building in 1902 which were canceled because too many members had moved away.  The church eventually stopped holding services and was torn down about 1960.

The earliest cemetery burials were in the 1880's and 1890's and it continued to be used rather seldomly by local persons through the current time.  The original church building was apparently in the northern or front half of the property.
