Grand Canyon Pioneer Cemetery Closed To New Burials

I've been to Grand Canyon National Park several times, but I was unaware that there is a historical cemetery at the South Rim.

U.S. News & World Report said that due to a "lack of space", no new burials will be taking place at the Grand Canyon Pioneer Cemetery. There are about 400 individual graves there, including 29 unidentified passengers from the 1956 TWA-United Airlines plane crash that took the lives of 128 people. I blogged about this plane crash last year.
