STUBBLEFIELD (SALING) CEMETERY


STUBBLEFIELD (SALING) CEMETERY
Near NW corner of Foster and Reser Roads

The Stubblefield Cemetery property was deeded by homesteader John Saling to the Saling Cemetery Association on January 1, 1870. The first known burial was in 1863, and the last known burial was in 1920.  In his 1902 will, prominent area farmer Joseph Stubblefield left a bequest to “the trustees of the Blue Mountain Cemetery,” as well as a provision for a Stubblefield gravestone there.  The Stubblefield monument is the largest and most prominent marker in the cemetery. 

Authority for care and protection of this historic cemetery has been granted by the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation to the local nonprofit, Walla Walla Historic Cemeteries.
