Clover Bar Cemetery is a country cemetery originally started by pioneering families. Its large stone gateway at the entrance of the cemetery continues to stand as a humble but impressive tribute to the courage and vision of our pioneers. The Cemetery was created in 1901 behind the Clover Bar Church. Homesteader W.H. Wilkinson donated his land for the cemetery and he and nine other local residents formed a cemetery company. In 1931 for the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the first Clover Bar settlers, they erected a stone gateway to the cemetery as a permanent jubilee memorial. It would consist of two stone posts with stone wings and a set of heavy steel gates. The City of Edmonton took over the running of the cemetery in 1995.
