The Dolen Cemetery is located in NE 1/4 of 2-4-5, Blakely Township, Gage County, Nebraska. The cemetery was named after Benjamin Dolen who homesteaded the land on which the cemetery lies. Mr. Dolen died in 1897 and was buried at the cemetery along with many family members. This cemetery has also been associated with the hamlet of Hoag, Nebraska which was located just two miles south of the cemetery. The land on which the cemetery lies was never officially deeded to the cemetery. There are 28 known individuals buried here. Dolen was classified as an abandoned cemetery in Gage County on June 1, 1982 and currently Boy Scout Troop #221 maintains it.
