Cemetery Saturday: Half-Day Cemetery

Half-Day Cemetery is located along NW 62nd Street in northern Shawnee County about a half mile southwest of the small town of Elmont. Elmont was founded in 1886 and was established on a gently rising hill, lending to its name. Elmont was hit by a flood in 1902 and a tornado in 1917. The town is situated on the east bank of Half Day Creek, which was named for a Potawatomi Chief. Today, Elmont consists of a couple dozen residences and Elmont Elementary School for the Seaman Unified School District.
