aka Old Pioneer Cemetery
Location:  Go west on Hwy 2 from Coulee City. Turn left/north on Rd 37th NE  and go about 2 blocks.   The cemetery is on the left.  
 
The cemetery has a fence around it that needs work.  It is on about one acre of land one mile northeast of Coulee City, west of Hwy 2. There is very little up keep.  It is, over grown with weeds and  sage brush.  The cemetery has been in need of up keep for some good 40 years. The remaining headstones are mostly the upright type and quite visible.
 
The cemetery is estimated to have started about 1889.  Burials ceased because of the high water table causing the gravestones to sink. However, the owner of the adjacent land said that burials ceased because of the rocky soil that made it difficult to dig the graves
