Old Prairieville Cemetery restored, remembered

Editor's note: In 2007, Tim and Sue Lloyd, Peggy Kelly and Dallas Drake set out to restore the Old Prairieville Cemetery on Highway 60, a few miles east of Faribault. The cemetery was deactivated and the headstones laid down and covered about 1930. The little town of Prairieville around the cemetery had also about ceased to exist. After years of work, this group, now known as the Friends of Old Prairieville Cemetery, has restored the cemetery. They celebrated the 150th anniversary of the incorporation of the old Prairieville Cemetery on Sunday, Sept. 14. The following remarks were shared by the Rev. Clay Oglesbee, District Superintendent, River Valley District, the United Methodist Church, for the event. The message intentionally imitated and paraphrased Thornton Wilder’s play, “Our Town,” and sets the narrative voice mostly in September 1914, a century ago, but with awareness of events before and after that date.
