Located on Cold Springs Road, just north of Placerville Drive, Middletown Cemetery once serviced what was in the Gold Rush days known as Middletown Placerville.

Middletown Cemetery is approximately 1.6 acres and has 677 recorded plots. The cemetery is no longer active and the last burial was in 1998. It is believed the Middletown Cemetery was established by 1856, with its first burial believed to have occurred in the same year.

Until 1871, the Middletown and Placerville City Cemeteries were used as the primary public cemeteries for residents not buried in the church cemeteries of Placerville. The Placerville Union Cemetery was established by several major fraternal organizations in 1871. After the 1880's, Middletown Cemetery was used less frequently. The property was deeded to El Dorado County in 1934. After the County Hospital Cemetery was closed in the early 1960's, the indigent burials were placed here until the mid 1990's. The cemetery has original headstones, replacement headstones and a lot of unmarked graves. For information on this cemetery, contact the Cemetery Administrators office at (530) 642-4922.

Directions for Getting There:

Highway 50 east towards Placerville. Take the Forni Road exit and turn right at the stop sign. Follow the street around the curve and go through the two stop lights. You are now on Placerville Drive. Continue on Placerville Drive until you reach Pierroz Road, then turn left. Follow Pierroz to the stop sign and turn left, you are now on Cold Springs Road. Middletown Cemetery is just passed the funeral home on the right hand side. As soon as you see the funeral home slow down or you will miss it. There will be a rock wall on either side of the driveway. If you see the trailer park on the left, you've gone too far.
