Gresham cemetery is located about 11 miles SE of Sprague Washington on Hwy 23, or 2 miles SE of Lamont.

This cemetery was established Jun 22, 1891. It is known by both Gresham and Swannack Cemetery.

A survey was done of the cemetery in September of 1999 by Bud and Richard Engelhardt. It is no longer used for interment and there has not been any burials made since it was copied by Lorraine Cook White and Margie Freier Robertson in 1973. Some data was gathered from other sources than the tombstones.
