To reach this cemetery, drive west on Hwy 200 in Thompson Falls and turn left onto Greenwood Street, then right onto Ogden St and a left onto Woodland Street. The cemetery will be on your left.

The Wild Rose Cemetery used to be the City/County cemetery when Thompson Falls was in Missoula County. Wild Rose is a very old cemetery, which has no perpetual care. Judging from the dates below, it began in the late 1800s, earliest death date being 1880. Many burials are no longer marked and the city has no records.

Wild Rose is now maintained by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), though still owned by the city. Even if a family has a burial plot no burials are allowed any more due to the age of the cemetery and the city asks all to appreciate that no heavy equipment can enter the cemetery for traditional burials because no vaults were used in the early days. As time has passed the city now does not allow burials of any type, not even ashes.

Wild Rose Cemetery was cleaned and in good condition when I was there, but the grass is all dry, due to no sprinkler system, which might be possible in the future. Much work has been done in the last few years to bring this beautiful cemetery back to use and kept maintained. It has much history in it.

I used a digital camera to read this cemetery and have photos of most of the existing stones. If anyone has proof or knowledge of a burial I do not have, I will be happy to add it.

I visited and walked this cemetery on Aug 22, 2005, This includes all existing and legible headstones readings.
