To reach cemetery from the highway take First St south to Cemetery Rd, then turn left and continue for .7mi. The cemetery can be seen on the hill as you approach.

This is the cemetery for the town of Farmington and was established about 1877. The first cemetery started on the old Breeding farm, which bordered on the state line with Idaho. I have not found out if this is the same place. This cemetery borders the stateline also.

Mountain View Cemetery is owned and maintained by Whitman County Cemetery District #8, Farmington WA.

This cemetery sits in the middle of farmland on a slight hill, with evergreen trees scattered throughout the cemetery. The older section appears to be on the north side. A newer section has been started on the south side.

The earliest birthdate I found listed is 1800, earliest deathdate 1873. Abbrev: s/w = stone with, s/o = son of, w/o = wife of, h/o = husband of, d/o = daughter of.

I walked and read this cemetery on Aug 21-23, 2002. A storm stopped me from completing it in one visit, which was beautiful to watch as it came in from the mountains of Idaho. Some of my photos show the darkened sky.

After transcribing from my survey of the cemetery, I compared my work with that of a previous reading done in 1972 by Carrie and Weston Lartigue. I have placed an asterisk after names they had which I found no marker for. If anyone finds an error in this transcription, please contact me, I would be happy to correct it, if I have misread the marker.
