Responsibility for the upkeep of the abandoned Liberty Cemetery continues unresolved. The Courier Traveler reports the Arkansas City Board of Education acquired the property by default because of the consolidation of school districts in the late 1800s. The district believes legal responsibility for upkeep of the property, located 10 miles northeast of Ark City, now belongs to Silverdale Township. Ron Ballard, USD 470 superintendent, said at a board meeting Monday that the board attorney Tamara Niles has researched the matter and determined the responsibility sits directly with Silverdale.
