Mount Pleasant Cemetery
(Port Angeles, Clallam County)
Mount Pleasant Road
Port Angeles
This is a small cemetery, on what was known as the George Race Homestead.  It was dedicated as a cemetery in 1919, with possible earlier burials.  The last known burial was in 1922.  As of 2009, the site was over grown and difficult to find, with only one cement cross remaining.  It is on private property and not accessible to the public, but was designated as a historical site by the State of Washington.

In 2009, it was suggested as a community project, but apparently, no action was taken.  From newspaper accounts and oral history, there may have been up to 24 burials, but only 9 have been identified. Clallam County Genealogy Society has some photos and a list of the identified burials, with names, birth dates, death dates, and when known, birthplaces and parent names.
