The Lakeview Cemetery is located at the south end of Division Street
off Highway 2, next to Pend Oreille Lake.
Lakeview Cemetery was platted in October 1903. After it was established
the original cemetery in Sandpoint, Humbird Cemetery, was moved from
it's location on a strip of land along the Northern Pacific Railroad,
donated to Sandpoint by Mr. Ferguson.
After the Humbird Lumber Company purchased the property, the graves
were moved to the new site of the Lakeview Cemetery. The oldest known
burial is 1885 and was one of the relocated graves. This list from the
transcriptions of the tombstones was completed October 2000.
This list was checked with a list completed by the Shanes and with
the funeral home records. There were several unreadable stones, several
unmarked graves, and several old upright stones that were knocked over
and too heavy to lift to see what they say.
A board of volunteers makes up the Lakeview Cemetery Committee. Several
members on this committee are in the process of probing some of the
areas in an attempt to locate markers that have since been buried by
sod and weeds. The volunteers also keep care of the maintenance of this
Tombstone transcriptions were completed by Mary and Nellie Garrison
during August 2000. Information was also gathered from obituaries and
death notifications in the local newspapers furnished by the Bonner
County Historical Museum.
