West View Cemetery

Location:

Rural La Porte City, south of town

This cemetery was established in 1855, and still exists as the only cemetery still serving the community of La Porte City. The early stones of the cemetery read as a roll call of the community founders, business people and dwellers. As with many cemeteries, there are stones showing the changes in the cemetery monuments over the years.

The statue in honor of "Our Boys of 1861-1865" was erected by the Women's Relief Corps and citizens of La Porte City May 30, 1898.
