Menno cemetery was established in 1900 by the Menno Settlement, Mennonite Church, located a few miles from this location. Pioneers of this turn-of-the-century community are buried here with burials still taking place as of 2007. The cemetery has no grass but is fenced and well cared for. There are just over 200 burials that are marked.

Menno Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA), is located at 1378 N. Damon Road, 20 miles (32 km) west of Ritzville, and 19 miles (30 km) northwest of Lind in Adams County, eastern Washington, a member of the Pacific Northwest Mennonite Conference, was organized in 1879 near Freeman, South Dakota, with Jacob R. Schrag and Joseph Kaufman as elected ministers. In 1888 Schrag and a number of families moved west to Polk County, near Dallas, Oregon. In 1891 they settled near Eugene, OR, and in 1900 the entire congregation moved by covered wagon to their present location, where they pioneered on homestead land and started the Menno Cemetery. The first church, built in 1908, was replaced by a modern structure in 1950.
