In the aerial view of the cemetery (above), Las Vegas Blvd. is at the left; Oldest sections of the cemetery are shown at the left. Newer sections of the cemetery are at right of the aerial view, along Bruce Street.

Several years go when the city was widening Owens St. they unearthed 8 bodies. The remains were reinterred in Section O near Myrtle Road, the center road inside the cemtetery that runs between Foremaster and Owens (see round-about)

The cemetery office (lower left corner above, upper right corner below) is at the southwest corner of the 10 acres deeded to the City of Las Vegas by the Las Vegas Land & Water Co. in 1914 (
Historical plaque at entrance to office). This ten acres was "near the old cemetery" (Las Vegas Age, 2/7/1914). Reference to the "old cemetery" would mean the Stewart Ranch Cemetery.

In the map view of the cemetery (below), Las Vegas Blvd. is at the right of the map, oldest sections are at the right; newer sections are at the left, opposite of the aerial view.
