(ABC 6 NEWS) -- It's a big step forward for a new veterans cemetery in southeast Minnesota.
Tuesday, the Fillmore County Board of Commissioners scheduled a day to transfer 167 acres of county land to the state.
A ceremony will take place next Tuesday, October 15th at 11:00am.
Once the land transfer is complete, construction on the project can begin. The cemetery will become a final resting place for thousands of veterans.
