Rose Hill Cemetery
George (Dodd) Wentworth, who homesteaded a quarter in Section 17 west of Wentworth on which Rose Hill Cemetery is located donated the plat for the cemetery. Before it was platted, Allie, nine year old daughter of Willard Packard, died from diphtheria and was buried on this ground in March, 1881. A brother, Arthur, eleven years old, died of the same disease in April. When the cemetery was platted by I?. B. Mullen in July 1882, the plat was started from the grave of Allie. In 1961 an additional three acres was purchased from Don and Thelma Amundson. The cemetery is located one mile west of Wentworth.
