Memorial Day - The Fall City Cemetery

My husband and I visited the Fall City Cemetery in Fall City, Washington. It is a beautiful and well maintained cemetery on a hill overlooking the Snoqualmie Valley. Fall City is named for its location 3 miles below Snoqualmie Falls. This cemetery is the final resting place for pioneers Josiah Merritt, after whom Mount Si was named, and Jeremiah Borst, the founder of Fall City. I thought I would share a select few photographs of the veterans of service to our country who are buried here.

Always great to see people going to a cemetary. Great idea to type the information under the picture: it makes it searchable. Maybe a cousin will contact you after finding it in Google!

I always try to add photograph information in the text to make it searchable.

If a relative contacted me I'd be thrilled!
