This cemetery is located about a mile southwest of Scott's Valley Cemetery one on Scott's Valley Rd

This cemetery is the older Scott's Valley cemetery. I have found very little history on it. The current Sexton said it was started by the first settlers to the Scott's Valley area. At a later date a different cemetery was started, using land donated by Nathan Newell. Several from this cemetery were removed to the newer cemetery leaving the following list of names.

The original size of the cemetery was perhaps larger. A chainlink fence is built around what has been preserved. It can be reached by taking Hwy 291 west from Tum Tum for about one mile, then turn right, or north, onto Scott's Valley Road. Continue on for about 2 mi, then turn right onto West Riverview Lane for 1/4 mile. The cemetery lies off to the right in a farmer's field.

Below is the inscription which was on the back of the shared headstone of the Scott's.
"The area lying north of this monument is known as Scott's Valley. It was originally homesteaded by Bryon F. Scott in the year of 1888.

Remaining in this cemetery are primarily Scott family members, all of which were original settlers of Scott's Valley. I surveyed this cemetery on May 20, 1999.
