Fisher Farm is located at the very end of 42 Street in Bellevue, Nebraska, approximately 8600 South 42. Just keep driving south on 42 Street till you come to a dead end (no pun intended). The Fisher Farm cemetery is in the yellow circle below.

The farm had been owned by the Fisher family, from the mid-1800's when Bellevue was new; the Sperling family bought it in approximately 1910 or so. I don't know if it is still owned by them but it's still private property, so ask permission if you venture past the graveyard.

The Fisher family cemetery consists of six or seven headstones and sits off to the east of the house and driveway. Several of the stones are among the oldest in the Omaha/Bellevue area; Bellevue is the oldest settlement in Nebraska, being for the most part continually occupied since 1823, back when fur trading was the big business locally. Fisher Farm shares space with tiny Hrabik cemetery and the much larger Beth Hamedrosh Hagodol cemetery and B'Nai Abraham Cemetery, as you can see in the picture below.

There is also a special secret about Fisher Farm that is not general knowledge.
