The Town of Benson raised their prices for cemetery lots in 2005. A
full lot is 20'by 20' (where 8 caskets with vaults can be buried)sells
for $2,000. $1600. of this goes to perpetual care. Half a lot is
$1000., $800. goes to perpetual care, and we are now selling single
lots 5' by 10' for $250. We are also asking $50. for a burial and
$50. for placing of a stone. It is hard to keep our cemetery mowed
and any money helps.
