In 1907, young Vera Westbrook died in Post City and was laid to rest in a grave near Two Draw Road. In 1908, with the death of Vertie Rogers Conn, the board of directors of the Double U Co. told town founder C. W. Post in Battle Creek, Michigan, about the need for a cemetery. Post replied "I wish there was no need for any such spot, but we have to conduct our affairs in accordance with the dictation of a power much superior to our own intelligence." Post provided land for the cemetery and instructions for its layout. Conn was the first burial on Oct. 13, 1908. Westbrook was also reinterred here. The original 19.35 acre cemetery platted in 1912 has expanded to include several thousand burials, serving as a testament to generations of families.
