FAIRMOUNT MEMORIAL PARK

Sitting high on the rim rock above the Spokane River, one can enjoy the breath taking view of Spokane's "Bowl and Pitcher" and Riverside State Park, while the stunning mid-century modern design of Sunset Mausoleum contrasts with the classical architecture of the many private mausoleums, offices and maintenance structures built in the early 20th century.

Originally established as Fairmount Cemetery on May 29, 1888, Fairmount Cemetery served as the Spokane community's "Official City and County Burial Ground". This cemetery park is made up of 160 acres with just over 80 developed.

 

MEMORIAL OPTIONS AT FAIRMOUNT

As one of Spokane's oldest cemeteries, and being established as what was considered in the day to be a modern approach to cemeteries, its also undeniably beautiful.  The combination of amazing natural scenery, inspiring views, and historic monuments and architecture make Fairmount today what it has been for generations: a premier park for memorialization, reflection and the honoring of loved ones. 

Fairmount Memorial Park currently has 60,000 internments, with 74,000 internment rights sold and room for an additional 10,000.

THE CEMETERY PARK

Fairmount's 160 acres offer a diverse landscape for contemplative reflection and memorialization.  Classical monuments of earlier generations share the tree-lined grounds with more contemporary open spaces.  To learn more about cemetery plots at Fairmount Memorial Park or other parks, please visit the Ground Burial page.
