To reach the cemetery, from Davenport go north on Highway 25 for a little more than 6 miles, then west for about a half mile. The cemetery is within an approximate 2 acre fenced area of weeds south of the road. It is not cared for. Highway 25 was the main route to Fort Spokane in days of yore.
The town of Larene at one time had a post office, blacksmith shop and small store. In 1895 the population was 72, in 1919, 129 registered voters were counted. Like many towns of that era, nothing remains today.
There are two stones, both flat markers that appear to be newer than their dates would indicate, perhaps recently replaced. Pat Rice and Marge Womach stopped at this cemetery in Oct. 1999.- Pat Rice

* An earlier recording of this cemetery for "Tombstones of Lincoln County," compiled by Wes and Carrie Lartigue in 1974 shows one other known burial.
** According to a family member, three others were buried here. Their wood markers are at the Davenport Museum as are three similar but smaller markers with no apparent carving on them that have been identified as footstones.
*** In addition, research by Marge Womach provides info from the obituary of Henrietta Rossel.
