Cemetery notes and/or description:
Early graves that were located around the hilly area of the current Lighthouse Center were relocated to the northeast part of town, buried in tight rows, and given the name of Trails End Cemetery. Four decades passed with the cemetery receiving little care. Any burials after 1909 were sometimes randomly placed and often buried in the area of the present-day golf course near the cemetery. When the Tahoe City Cemetery District was formed, those graves were moved within the cemetery. In 1953 Constable Harry Johansson -- on his own -- cleaned, plotted gravesites, created maps, and carved grave markers for known and unknown graves. He also enlisted business owners to contribute to the cemetery's upkeep. Masonry work by Marshall Ruhkala included rock walls and the graceful rock entry arch which completed the project in 1959. The Tahoe City Women's Club raised funds to add to what Johansson collected. In the late 1960s, Carl Bechdolt donated a 1/3 parcel adjoining the cemetery which greatly increased its capacity. When Constable Johansson moved, maintenance of the cemetery was taken over by Harold Farr until his passing in 1985.
