Vine Bluff Cemetery,
Nephi, Juab, Utah
The Vine Bluff Cemetery is located in Nephi
, Juab County, Utah. Nephi is about 100 miles south of Salt Lake City. The cemetery is rather hard to find if you don't know what you are looking for. It is on the northeast end of town, but still likely out of the city limits. If I remember right, you are able to drive north on 400 East until you reach the cemetery. These pictures were taken by my sister and I in March 2000. Click on the thumbnails to see a larger version of the headstone.
A Utah State University website sets forth some history on the city of Nephi. "In 1851, when the first settlers of our valley selected the area on the Salt Creek as their community site, they also started a tradition which even today stands as a beacon to the travelers... they established hospitality and a spirit of friendliness. This same feeling exists today, as we welcome visitors from throughout the state of Utah and elsewhere to our community.
Nephi is the "Friendly City at the Crossroad of Utah," not in slogan only, but in reality, for it stands indeed at the crossroads. Highway I-15 passes through the East side of Nephi and Highway U-132 is the east-west highway which crosses I-15 at Nephi. From Nephi, all areas of the state are accessible.
Nephi's utilities include an abundance of natural gas and plentiful electricity, and mountain spring water is in more than adequate supply throughout the year. The recent addition of two hydroelectric plants, a new water supply line, and a new sewer lagoon system help ensure available utilities for new businesses or industries.
City officials and citizens invite friends and visitors to return to our city often, to enjoy the park, golf course, pool and other recreational facilities, and if they are seeking business or retirement locations, to consider all the advantages of location, climate, accessibility to improved highways, utilities and highly productive work force."
