A BRIEF HISTORY
In 1907 the Opportunity Cemetery Association was established as a small, family operation to serve the then rural communities of the Spokane Valley.
Pines Cemetery was dedicated in 1910 and started with a few acres of land on the north side of 16th Avenue. The cemetery's neighbors during this time consisted mostly of apple orchards.
Following the Second World War, and supported by the completion of Grand Coulee Dam and new industries in Trentwood and along Appleway (Sprague) Avenue, the population of the Spokane Valley began to take off.
As a consequence of this post-war growth boom, Pines Cemetery was quickly outgrowing its original property and purchased land on the south side of 16th Avenue.
The cemetery's most distinctive landmark, the basalt rock and glass Pines Mausoleum, was built on this land in the 1960's.
A Veterans Memorial was added in the 1990's.
In June of 2013 Fairmount Memorial Association agreed to acquire Pines Cemetery
