Cemetery Taxing Districts
There are eight cemetery districts (which cover 11 cemeteries) in Douglas County. These districts levy taxes that pay for the upkeep and maintenance of the cemeteries.
The cemetery districts are independent from the Board of County Commissioners. Each cemetery district has a board of trustees which governs the cemetery. There are many more cemeteries in Douglas County that are not supported by property tax levies, but are under the jurisdiction of cities, churches or private owners. See the links below to maps of all cemeteries in Douglas County.
Interactive Cemetery Map
Douglas County has launched a new interactive cemetery map. The map was created by Senior GIS Analyst Amy Roust. She worked with former Douglas County Heritage Coordinator Jan Shupert-Arick and John Nichols, of the County Clerk’s Office, who gathered records related to each cemetery. Work began on the project about three years ago.
