Alta Vista

Calvary Cemetery, above (patriotic, if not specific to war), and in the town center, below

A large, impressive, well-done memorial with a flag you could see a mile away.


The cemetery of the Catholic Church and the large and impressive memorial for William J. Ira, 1892-1915, who served in the 88th Division; he is buried with his father, Joseph, 1861-1953, and his mother, Mary, 1862-1938. There are two Veterans Administration markers, so the fatherseems to have served also.
