To reach cemetery from Main Ave in Sumner, drive west to Pacific Ave, crossing the river, then left onto Valley Ave E and continue less than a mile to the cemetery.
This cemetery is owned and maintained by the city of Sumner WA. It is very well maintained and in excellent condition. One may enter on the Valley Ave E side or it can also be accessed by the side gate on 124th Ct E.
This cemetery is made up of two sections and a mausoleum. The one is the older section which began about 1864. There was a need to expand so in 1947 a new larger section was dedicated. The two sections are across the street from each other.
As you enter at the front there is a plaque which reads: Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. In memory of the men and women who served there county in the armed forces. Behind the plaque stands the US and POW flag. This was erected by The Sumner Victory Post # 3070 VFW 1947.
I walked and read this cemetery in 2003 over a period of time. I also have added some readings for early 2004. This is a work in progress.
