The West Line Street Cemetery is the older of two Pioneer District
cemeteries in Bishop, Inyo County, California. Originally named the
Pioneer Cemetery, it is located north of Northern Inyo Hospital, at
the end of Pioneer Lane off West Line Street, one of the town's major
thoroughfares. The cemetery was established in 1868; the cemetery district
in 1926. The caretaker, Lee Lee, takes impeccable care of the grounds,
and is delighted to tell you the histories of many of the markers and
monuments, and the people they commemorate. The Information was compiled
by Diane Mettam and Monte Williams during the summer of 2000, surveying
and documenting each marker, and then auditing that information against
the cemetery books to include those people interred without markers,
and incorporate additional information about the deceased.
