The Depot Cemetery is found off of Lone Pine Narrow Guage Road and is within sight of the ruins of the old train depot building in the distance.


The manager of the Mount Whitney Cemetery District shared in 2015 that the Depot Cemetery graves were created from the necessity of burying in the spring, when the water table at the Pioneer Cemetery (until 1884, the main cemetery) was too high to allow for burials. Then in late summer, they would be disinterred and moved to the PioneerCemetery. It (the PioneerCemetery) was never full and was used until 1914, after which only the cemetery on Hwy. 395 (now called the Mount WhitneyCemetery) was used. Mount WhitneyCemetery was originally established by the Knights of Pythias on donated ranch land.
