History: Mount Olivet Cemetery was active within the greater Chelan community from July 1894 to 1928. Approximately 45 interments were made in this cemetery, and about half a dozen were relocated to Fraternal Cemetery in the 1960s. The site was called Chelan Cemetery from 1894 to 1901; in November 1901 a cemetery board was formed and the site formally named as Mount Olivet. Some interments are carried only in the St Andrew Episcopal Church records with obscure identification and interment dates not known with certainty. The cemetery was closed just before the Great Depression. Cemetery records were reconstructed from scattered registers and newspaper accounts in the 1990s by the Chelan Valley Genealogical Society. Markers are still visible at the site.
