Directions from Sandpoint are: Take Highway 200 into Clark Fork City. Once in the city limits turn to your right on Stevens Street and follow it toward the railroad tracks and river. When you cross the tracks take the road to the left which will go to the old Clark Fork Bridge across the river. The bridge is safe for travel even though it may not look it. Once across the bridge follow the road to your left for about 7 miles and you will notice a road goes to your left. There is a sign indicating the Cabinet Fish Hatchery is this direction. Follow this road for about 2 or 3 miles and you will notice a sign to the fish hatchery points to the road going to the left that crosses the tracks. Do not take this road. Stay on the main road and continue on. A short distance from there you will see a road to your right that goes up the hill toward a lodge.

Follow this road just past the lodge and you will notice some hound dog kennels on your right. The cemetery is just past these dog kennels on the right side of the road and is very hard to see. The cemetery is in it's natural state. Many of the stones are overgrown and many of the burial sites are not marked.

Johnny Painter has the actual deed to the Cabinet Cemetery, a gift from Julia Newell, a Montana woman, in the late 1960's. Mr. Painter and his wife, Pat, showed us the location of the cemetery.

This is an abandoned Cemetery. Not used and badly overgrown when I surveyed it 06-13-2001.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
