To reach cemetery from Kendrick, drive north on Hwy 3 about a mile, turn left onto Bethany Road, following the right curve. Cemetery will be on the right in front of church.

In July 1902, a group of Norwegian settlers met for the purpose of building a church in the vicinity of Big Bear Ridge. This church was then named Evangelical Lutheran Church, Bethany Congregation, Kendrick, Idaho. The building was completed during the time frame of 1906-1908.

In 1904, the graveyard section of the property was determined and the first burial was in 1906. On Dec. 26, 1905 the first service - a wedding was conducted, that of Halvor Lein & Hilda Slind.

In 1966, at a special meeting a decision was made to discontinue regular services due to lack of membership & support. On Dec. 18, 1979, the Bethany Memorial Chapel was entered on the National Register of the Historical Places in the United States for greater detail concerning the church property and it's history see "Gleaning from Big Bear Ridge." by Gerald Ingle, 1982.

Memorial services are held annually followed by a potluck dinner where members of the Association and relatives of the interred fellowship.

I read this cemetery on May 30, 1999.
