Silver City Cemetery Ceremony Celebrates Signing

July 27, 2014, 12:02 PM

SILVER CITY, SD -

Supporters of a bill that transfers ownership of nine historic cemeteries in the Black Hills from the federal government to local communities celebrated among the living and the dead.

Republican Rep. Kristi Noem of South Dakota led the ceremony Saturday at the Silver City Cemetery, one day after President Obama signed the Black Hills Cemetery Act into law.

The pioneer-era cemeteries had been owned and managed by the U.S. Forest Service. Noem says the bill will make it easier to keep the burial grounds in good condition.

The legislation also changes the ownership of the Englewood, Galena, Hayward, Mountain Meadows, Roubaix, Nemo, Rockerville and Cold Springs cemeteries.
