Emerson Cemetery

The SE Quarter of Section 24 in Township 143 N, Range 95 W
Emerson Cemetery is easy to get to and very well marked. It is 3 miles south of Manning, ND on Hwy 22 and 5.75 miles east on 16th Street. It is fenced with a large, clearly visible sign over the gate. This cemetery had not been mowed and was not well maintained. However, there is much evidence that this cemetery is visited often by all the artificial flowers decorating the sites.

Emerson (formerly Connolly) became a town when Dunn County was organized and vied for the County seat but lost out to Manning. The town flourished until the railroad line was built from Bismarck to Killdeer. By 1917 most of the businesses had moved from Emerson to the towns along the railroad line. Today nothing remains of Emerson. (From Dauntless Dunn II - 1989 A History of Dunn County North Dakota pages 64 and 65.)
