Fountain Green Elementary SchoolFountain Green is located about 85 miles south of Salt Lake City, Utah in Sanpete County. It is now a town of a few hundred people. The cemetery is located on 400 N. to the east of Main Street (i.e. turn left on 400 N. while traveling south - towards St. George - on Main Street.

Historic Fountain Green Main StreetA Utah State University website described the city of Fountain Green saying "both the sight and site of Fountain Green must have contributed to its settlement. It was a popular campground for Salt Creek and San Pitch travelers during the 1850s before Johnsons and other families from Santaquin in Utah Valley, settled it. Lying just below the Divide (and Mt. Nebo), it had a green fountain second to no other spring in Sanpete. Any tour of Fountain Green (incorporated in 1886) ought to include a stop at the Unitah Springs (Big Springs) which gush out of the mountains two miles northwest of town to form Silver Creek -- the source of the town's greenness. Pictures of both Fountain Green's elementary school in the 1800's and historic Main Street of Fountain Green are pictured.

I took pictures of a large amount of headstones in the Fountain Green City Cemetery in March 2001. Click on the thumbnails to see a larger photo of the headstone. Headstones that are for two people are listed after both surnames, if both surnames are known. Because of the type fo stone used on some headstones, and factors such as weathering and workmanship, some headstone photos are difficult to read, unless you know what you're reading. I have included a "caption" with these headstone photos to help you know what is written on the stone.

I've noticed that Fountain Green isn't very green in March, eh?
