Go through the town of Wallula turning onto 2nd Street and going to the end. The cemetery is on the far East side of town. It is fenced, grassed and kept mowed.

Wallula is in it's third location. It was first platted in 1862 around Fort Walla Walla which was first known as Fort Nez Perce. Wallula was the head of steam shipping on this section of the Columbia River, although sometimes ships went on upriver to Priest Rapids or up the Snake River. During the 1860s and 1870s a lot of freight and passengers passed through Wallula with rumours of gold being found in Washington, Oregon and Idaho.

The original Fort at Old Wallula, called Old Town, was destroyed in 1843 by fire but rebuilt of adobe about in the center of Old Wallula. When the railroad came through in 1883 the second Wallula, which was some distance from Old Town, was laid out by Lewis McMorris.

In 1949 the Corps of Engineers was going to build a dam below Wallula Gap on the Columbia River and a new townsite was needed. On Aug 0 4, 1952 the town was certified by Walla Walla County Auditor, Walter Kimberly. The lake behind the new McNary Dam was named Lake Wallula. The first two locations of the town were covered by the lake. The third location is to the East and high on the hill.

The last burial in the old one was about 1934. Graves that were moved are marked below. A big thank you to Garland Wilson, a local area historian, for providing the information and a previous reading. At the gate the large sign states that the new cemetery was established in 1953.
