To reach this cemetery, take Hwy 12 west out of Orofino for about 10 miles and turn left or north into Pierce. Driving north on Main Street (Hwy 11) in Pierce, turn left onto Moscrip Drive. Cemetery is across street from a church after about 3 blocks.

This cemetery is still kept as the burial grounds, which contained all of the Chinese who died in Pierce many years ago. It is maintained even though all of the bodies have been removed and returned to their homeland. One can see many of the grave openings, where they dug them up and left the hole exposed. Chinese Artifacts, broken tools and rotting cabins are still found in the nearby hills.

I visited this site on Jul 01, 2007.
