Head South on Meridian (Highway 161). Turn Right (heading West) onto Eatonville Cut-Off Road (76 gas station on corner). Take first Left onto Stringtown Road. Turn Left at 78th Road East (sign at entrance says "Rainier Cemetery". Cemetery is enclosed in a chain-link fence. The Sexton is Dick Taylor (360) 832-6985 in Eatonville.

First burial was in 1894. Most recent was June 2001 (which did not have an actual headstone yet) Complete as far as I could tell by headstones which were visible. I surveyed the cemetery on Jul 05, 2001.
