Transcribed by Bob Stallman, who walked and recorded the cemetery in July 1999.
“The cemetery is located on the east side of State Route 203, just north of the center of town. The City assumed active management of the municipal cemetery in December 1999, and all inquiries should be directed to Mary Otness, Carnation City Clerk, after 1:00pm M-F.”
“I received the following information from Isabel Jones, a life long resident of Carnation, Washington. She was very helpful with the cemetery history: In 1905 the Northern section was started on land donated by Frederick B. Bagwell. He was the president of the cemetery association and the first burial in the cemetery. The members of the association were all Masons, they held no jurisdiction over it and the cemetery was open to "all citizenry". The following year the I.O.O.F. formed a Cemetery association, their cemetery was just south of the first cemetery with a roadway between.”
“In 1957 the north half was turned over to the Odd Fellows making it one cemetery and a new Tolt (now Carnation) I.O.O.F. Cemetery association was formed. The City of Carnation officially took over the cemetery in 1994. The cemetery has approximately 800 plots on about 2 acres of land.”
“Any of the death dates before 1906, were relocated to this cemetery from Pleasant Hill Cemetery, located between Carnation and Fall City.”
