Pioneer Cedar Cemetery

This spot of ground known as the Pioneer Cedar Cemetery was used from the time of the founding of Soda Springs “Upper Town” in 1871 to 1906. It contains over 42 marked graves and as many whose identification are unknown. Each plot was selected by squatters’ rights. Fenced and cared for by the family. After 1906 no new burials were made and many graves were moved to the Fairview City Cemetery. The majority of those left were victims of a diphtheria epidemic during the winter of 1890-91.
