The Carmangay Cemetery was established in 1910 out of necessity because of a typhoid epidemic.
In 1918, during the Spanish Flu epidemic, a CPR work crew died after contracting it. They are buried in unmarked graves in the northeast corner of the cemetery.
The stone gateway was built by Wyman Parker. The fence and sign by Ben Brown.
In 1967, a centennial project was undertaken to replace all the deteriorating wooden markers and identify all the unmarked graves with brass plaques on cement blocks. Today over 450 people rest here.
A cemetery is a history of people...a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth living and remembering...always.
