Mt. Hope Cemetery - Lander, Wyoming

Mt. Hope Cemetery is a cemetery located in Lander, Wyoming on Cemetery Hill in eastern Lander. Burials began in the late 19th century and the cemetery is currently maintained by the city of Lander. Nearly eight-thousand people are buried there, making it the largest cemetery in western Wyoming. It is located on a hill overlooking some of Wyoming Catholic College's dormitories and is also adjacent to Holy Rosary Catholic Church making it a popular dating and hangout spot when buildings are full or on warm nights. The cemetery closes officially at 9 pm, however, each night, and it is frequently patrolled by the Lander Police so these visits must not occur too late.
