Carnation, Washington is located in King County.
The Carnation Cemetery is located on the east side of State Road 203 just north of the center of town.
In 1905, Frederick B. Bagwell donated land for the Northern section of the Carnation Cemetery, then served as president of the cemetery association, and then became the first to be buried at Carnation Cemetery. Members of the cemetery association were all masons, but the cemetery was open to “all citizenry”.
In 1906, the I.O.O.F. formed a cemetery association using land just south of the first cemetery. A road divided the Mason’s cemetery from the I.O.O.F. Cemetery.
Between Carnation and Falls City, Washington, there was a cemetery known as Pleasant Hill Cemetery. Graves were relocated from Pleasant Hill Cemetery to the Carnation Cemetery in 1906.
In 1994, the City of Carnation took over management of the Carnation Cemetery. Today there are approximately 800 plots on 2 acres of land.
Reports of disembodied footsteps and whispers as well as apparitions. Reports of a white lady.
