Not only does Superior, Arizona have a community cemetary that's located on public land, but it also has a community corral, where its residents can board their horses, that is likewise located on public land. This may sound strange to some people, but you have to remember that when Superior came into existence more than 100 years ago, it was a copper-and-silver mining town that was located way out in the middle of nowhere and literally surrounded by what must have seemed to be an endless amount of public land. Placing the cemetary a mile out of town and the corral a bit further still must have struck the town fathers as a logical use of public resources, even though today it's hard for us modern city-dwellers to conceive of such a thing.
