A February View of the Provo Cemetery, facing eastThe Provo City Cemetery is located in Provo, Utah County, Utah, and can be found at the south end of 900 E. (about 300 S.) at State Street. There are over 27,000 burials in the Provo Cemetery, and so you can probably guess that all of those photos are not on my website. Some of the unique features of the Provo Cemetery are BabyLand (a section of cemetery devoted to infants), the Provo War Memorial, listing names of soldiers from Provo and Utah county and the war they fought in, and historic sections of the cemetery where such people as Jesse Knight, Dan W. Jones, Luana Hart Beebe (wife of Orrin Porter Rockwell), Philo T. Farnsworth, and others are buried. It's a beautiful cemetery!

The Pioneer Burial Grounds Stone--close upOne additional part of this cemetery is the Pioneer Burial Grounds, an area of pioneer graves of people who were transported and reinterred in 1853 at the Provo City Cemetery from the Fort Field, Grandview, and Temple Hill Cemeteries. This stone was erected in 1964 by the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, a group who dedicates time to preserving the memory of their Utah pioneer heritage. The stone mentions a few of these burials: Matilda and George W. Haws, Harriet M. Turner, William Dayton, Joseph Higbee, Katherine Radford, Jessee McGarred, Jacob Oloward, Martha Wheeler, Jacob H. Barney, Matilda Park, Sarah and William McLane, Sally Norton, Joseph Ivy, Margarett Fausett, Emily Roberts, Louisa Follett, Abisha Ware, Joseph McEwan, and Mary D. Peay. Others are buried in the Provo Cemetery that are not listed on this stone. The stone is located on the right side of the main cemetery lane near the front gate, and is accompanied by a drinking fountain, also in marble, erected by the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. (Don't get your hopes up...the drinking fountain didn't work the last time I was there.)
