This small cemetery no longer has regular care and is in poor shape. The area is fenced off with a mix of wooden and cement posts. It appears the lilacs were cut back in the last year or two (mid 1990's), but have since begun to grow again.  In the center of the cemetery there was a small mound that had been covered by the re-growth of grass and weeds. The grass patterns gave the appearance that the earth had been scraped and piled in that area. It did not appear the be a burial mound.

The only references to possible burials was a pair of burial marker stones with the initials JKK and ABK. These were located near the base of a large burial monument. The only other bit of information was a loose piece of another slab style burial stone with: Elm?? and son of ?, the rest was missing. 

The Dakota county cemetery compilation lists this cemetery as: Kibbe Cemetery. Private. First burial 1856. About 1 acre. Located NW 1/4 of Section 14. Alta Street (County Road 59) and north of 302nd Street. E. (Abandoned).

This cemetery was transcribed in 1996.
