The Austin Cemetery, in Austin, Nevada, United States, is a historic 5-acre (2.0 ha) cemetery whose first known burials were in 1863. It consists of four cemetery sections: Masonic and Odd Fellows sections on the north of U.S. 50, and Calvary (Catholic) and "Citizens" sections on the south side. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.[1][2] A fifth section, for Indians, next to the Citizen's section, is not included in the NRHP listing, due to owner issues.[2]
