When you are in on Highway 2 in Priest River go North on 3rd St and follow this until it connects into Cemetery Road. The cemetery will be to the east of the roadway.
The gates are open from 9:00 am until dusk. Currently Tom Peterson is the caretaker for the cemetery.
This cemetery was established in 1904. There were some burials there before that time. The lawn and cemetery are well maintained. The oldest burial appears to be Melisia J Henkle in 1895.
