|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Established in 1889 by the G.A.R.'s Morton Post 110 of Snohomish, the historic cemetery is one of two in the Puget Sound area and the only independently active and maintained Civil War G.A.R. cemetery in the State of Washington. Approximately two hundred Union veterans are buried within the grounds.
Highlighting the northwest corner of the premises is the G.A.R. monument. Dedicated in 1914, this obelisk-topped edifice features representations of the cavalry, navy and artillery surrounding and supporting a southern-facing, full-sized, uniformed and armed infantry sentry, alertly standing guard over his sleeping comrades in arms.
Company K, 3rd United States Regular Infantry Washington Civil War Association hosts an annual Service "Honoring Their Memory" for the 200 Civil War Veterans buried at the Snohomish G.A.R. Cemetery. Further Information: contact Bruce Smith 425-438-0351
