 ====== Cemeteries ====== ====== Cemeteries ======
 [[Boone County]] has a large number of cemeteries, including [[towns|municipal]],​ church and [[families|family]] cemeteries. Cemeteries were established by many [[churches]] after the [[Civil War]]. ​ Bullittsburg Baptist'​s cemetery, for example, was founded in the [[1860s]]. ​ Other church cemeteries include those of Beaverlick Baptist, Salem Baptist, East Bend Methodist, and Hopeful Lutheran. ​ Before and after the Civil War, Boone Countians buried their dead in family plots located in various locales around the county. ​ While it is estimated that 300 such cemeteries exist in Boone County, only about 215 have been identified to date.  As Boone County develops, protecting these small family cemeteries continues to be a key preservation issue. [[Boone County]] has a large number of cemeteries, including [[towns|municipal]],​ church and [[families|family]] cemeteries.
