To reach this cemetery from Palouse, drive southwest on Hwy 27 for about three miles. Turn right or west onto Clear Creek Road, in a short distance turn left onto Fugate Road and continue for about 4 miles, then left onto Kenoyer Road for about .3 mile. It will be a sharp, hairpin, left turn onto a small lane which leads up into the cemetery, which you can see on your left on a hillside.

This cemetery was established in 1907 according to court house records, but there are burials as early as 1888. The name makes me wonder if it was a church cemetery in the beginning.

This cemetery is maintained by Jim and Jeanette Askins and I found it in excellent condition. The lilacs have grown into groves, and must be very difficult to maintain. I suspect some unmarked graves are amid these.

I visited and read this cemetery on Jun 08, 2007, using a digital camera and I have a photo of each headstone.
