Missoula City Cemetery, established in 1884is one of the oldest operating cemeteries in the Missoula valley.  

The city of Missoula purchased the cemetery in 1901 and continues to operate, maintain, and improve the grounds.  

We proudly remain a vibrant, active part of the community where walkers, joggers, and visitors come daily.

A walk through the historic section reveals names of Missoula's founders and many unique handcrafted monuments.
