HOLY CROSS CEMETERY
KITTITAS CO.
ELLENSBURG, WA

Holy Cross Cemetery is an active cemetery owned and maintained by St. Andrews Catholic Church. There is no on-site caretaker. Although the iron gate says 1914, there are earlier burials. Sometime during the 1930s, Holy Cross Cemetery took over the county cemetery which was located in the adjoining property. Most of the county burials are located on the left (south) side of the cemetery. Homemade-type cement stones were used for indigent people. Most of the county burials give only the death date as they were probably without families and no one knew their birthdays. Many of the county markers are badly worn and impossible to read. Because of the wear, I may have misread some of them.

To locate the cemetery, go east on 8th Street which runs in front of Central Washington University campus. Turn north on Water and west on 15th. Proceed about one mile. The cemetery is on the west side of the street.
