Description

The Orthodox group of the Society of Friends (Quakers) held worship services in homes as their members migrated from the eastern States. Eventually the Fairview Meeting House was built and their cemetery laid out at this place. Non-members could be buried in the cemetery, as long as they agreed to follow the Quaker burial customs and place only a simple headstone, or none at all. The Fairview Quaker school was established across the road to the west. The Hillside Farm Post office was located 1/2 mile west on NW 12th. Eventually the membership dwindled and the Meeting was \"Laid Down\" (voluntarily unorganized) and the membership transfered to the oversight of the Sterling, Kansas Monthly Meeting. The cemetery property was transfered to Halstead Township.\n\nFirst Burial: July 2, 1872\nNumber of Burials: 116\nNumber of Veteran Burials: 4
