Fargo Springs Hillside Cemetery

Seward County, Kansas

Fargo Springs founded in 1865, about 3 miles South of Springfield, and 13 miles North of Liberal KS, Fargo Springs was the first town established in the county. In June, Fargo was named the temporary county seat and in 1867 the county seat was returned to Springfield. In 1888 Fargo Springs was bypassed by the railroad and and by 1897 Fargo Springs was officially vacated.

This cemetery no longer exists, as most of the people were moved into Liberal Cemetery.
