|Photographer||Brewer, Carl |
|Date||ca. 1965 |
|Notes||This old Bellevue cemetery, located near what is now 112th Avenue NE and Bellevue-Redmond Road, began as the Warren family's private burial grounds. It expanded to include their pioneer neighbors, and was in use through World War II. In 1969 the land was sold to developers and the next year the remains were removed. Many were reinterred at Sunset Hills Memorial Park, with unidentified remains marked with "Unknown Bellevue Pioneers" plaques.|
