About this spot
This small cemetery was active from 1879 to 1922. There are unknown number of people buried there, as many of the headstones are missing or knocked over and much of the vegetation in the cemetery is overgrown. It is located on a small hill overlooking surrounding farmlands. This is one of the few spots left in the Palouse with native prairie vegetation.

The Whelan Cemetery was established in 1888, nine years after burials started on the property. It served the former small town of Whelan, whose location was a short distance north of the cemetery.
