From Interstate 5 (north or south), take exit 102 and head West onto Trosper Rd SW. Turn Left at first light (Littlerock Rd SW). Cemetery is on the right hand side 0.4 miles down the road, just after Mills and Mills Funeral Home and Memorial Park.

Calvary Cemetery was established in 1873. It is adjacent to the Union Cemetery and shares the same grounds and fence. Cemetery is fenced in and has a lock on the main gate, but there is a place to park a car and walk in. You can also access the cemetery from the open side of the fence via the Memorial Park next to it. Be careful for mole holes in the ground. If entering the cemetery from the Memorial Park, these stones are against the back fence and to the right hand side of the cemetery.

The oldest marked burial was 1861. The cemetery is listed as a Pioneer Cemetery on the National, State and Tumwater Registry of Historical Places. Confirmed burial markers with Olympic Genealogical Society. For more information one may contact the city of Tumwater.

I walked and read the cemetery in October 2009. This listing includes only those visible stones/markers. It does appear that there are other burial plots with either missing or broken stones.
