Prairie Home Cemetery, Moorhead

Prairie Home Cemetery, founded in 1875, is the oldest cemetery in Moorhead. Many of the city's settler colonists, such as Randolph M. Probstfield and Solomon G. Comstock, are buried there. It inspired the name of Garrison Keillor’s famous National Public Radio (NPR) program A Prairie Home Companion.
