To reach the cemetery from Hwy 95 in Garwood, turn east on Garwood Road, then right onto Hudlow Road for about a mile. Shortly after the road makes a turn you will see the cemetery on your left.

On Jun 02, 1900 Mrs Tom Leggers donated 1 acre of land to the Garwood neighbors. As the years went by the cemetery gradually was left with little care until it was in an abandoned condition. After several years a need was seen by the VFW in Hayden ID, they decided to take action and took this cemetery under their wing.

The Hayden VFW and many volunteers came in and worked hard to restore the overgrown cemetery, platting it, cleaning it out, markers placed when possible. They were forced to leave a few unknown burial sites, for lack of information.

Since 1996 it has been maintained by the Hayden VFW Post 9831. A fence surrounds it with flags on holders atop the fenceline. Graves have been identified as best they could, however some only have a name, with no dates. In the center is a picnic area. They have made it possible for this once abandoned cemetery to become active again.

Rimrock is a private cemetery for the use of neighborhood residents only and is now operated by Jerry Engelbrecht. It is supported by donations and the help of caring Volunteers.

I have compared my reading with the map provided me by Jerry Engelbrecht and have placed an asterisk * after those names which came from the sexton records, with a parenthesis around additional information not found on the stone.

I surveyed this cemetery on Aug 05, 2004, using my digital camera and a notebook. Am willing to share photos if I have one you would like. There is no photo for an entry with an asterisk.
