Jewish Homesteader Cemetery Board seeks caretaker

Jewish Homesteader Cemetery Board seeks caretaker

The Ashley Jewish Homesteaders Cemetery Board is looking for a caretaker for the Cemetery located three miles north of Ashley. The association as well as descendants have appreciated the previous caretaker's hard work for the past decade. It’s no secret that all cemeteries are sacred spaces, but this one in particular is especially unusual. On November 17, 2015, the National Parks Service of the United States Department of the Interior named the Ashley Jewish Homesteaders Cemetery to the National Register of Historic Places. According to the National Registry of Historic Places announcement, “Ashley Jewish Homesteaders Cemetery is the only permanent physical reminder of the McIntosh County Jewish farming community --the largest Jewish agricultural settlement in North Dakota.” Photo by Sabrina Hornung
