The entrance to the IOOF Cemetery is on the right. North of this cemetery is Lewis and Clark County Cemetery and Forestvale Cemetery is on the left (west), Township 10 North, Range 3 West, Section 6. In October 1895, several lodges of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) in Helena met to take action on acquiring property for a proposed new cemetery just east of Forestvale Cemetery. On October 25, 1895, the first burial occurred in this cemetery and the cemetery remains active today. The grounds are well kept with many trees.
