Know Before You Go
The monument is a small, gated plot on the site of where the Wiseman homestead was. It is not a cemetery, although it looks like one. The graves of the Wiseman family are buried in the Wynot Nebraska Public Cemetery. While the monument itself is worth the trip, those who have never seen what the Missouri River looks like as it meanders between Nebraska and South Dakota may be surprised at how beautiful and rugged it is. The roads between Hwy 12 (The Outlaw Trail) and the monument are dirt/gravel and can be a little sketchy after a hard rain.
