Cemetery Historical Note

A short time after the East Jordan Ecclesiastical Ward was organized, which occurred on December 15, 1895 with Hyrum Goff as Bishop, they purchased 10.59 acres of land from James Wardle for a ward cemetery. Neils Lind was appointed sexton.

On September 6, 1916, an acre of ground in the northeast corner of the plat was sold to the Roman Catholic Church for burial purposes for the sum of $500.

In August of 1918, an acre adjoining the Roman Catholic piece on the west was sold to the Serbian Orthodox Church for $500.

By resolution of the City Council of Midvale City, in the spring of 1923, it was decided to purchase from the Midvale Ecclesiastical Ward (formally the East Jordan Ecclesiastical Ward) the balance of the old section of the cemetery known as "Plat A" and "Plat B" consisting of approximately 2 acres of ground for the sum of $100.

The following year the city purchased the balance of the ground containing 6.59 acres, paying $1,500 for the same.

In May of 1924, a complete plat of the city cemetery showing burial sections "A to J" inclusive was made and recorded for the city by Caldwell and Richards Engineers.

And thus, the Midvale City Cemetery began.
