The cannon is a 6.4 inch Navy Parrott rifle made at the West Point Foundry in 1863. The cemetery, 120 1st Ave. W, is in the SW area of town. Take 1st Avenue west from Highway 146 to the cemetery. The cannon is located on top of a hill to the right shortly after entering the cemetery. Photos taken 10/8/17.
