Wild Rose Cemetery was established in 1885. A plaque near the entrance of cemetery says, “Dedicated to Veterans of All Wars.” Furnished by the American Legion, Guy Enman Post #156, Deer Park WA 1971.

Wild Rose Cemetery is located west of Hwy 395 in S.W 1/4 of Sec 3, Twp. 27 N, Range 42 E, in Wayside Township on Wild Rose Prairie at 5800 W. Monroe Rd and 22200 W. Monroe Rd. This is because the road goes around the cemetery. If you go west from Hwy 395 on Monroe Rd., which would be about 15 miles north of Spokane Wa., you will find it.

At one time this was a thriving community. It is still called Wild Rose Prairie, but the postal service has placed it into the Deer Park area.

I walked the cemetery on Sep 04, 1998 and found the cemetery to be in very good condition. It is evident that someone is caring for the cemetery. This is a list of all the available information. Some stones are quite deteriorated, making one realize that my list is not complete. Transcribed and compiled by Maggie Rail © 1999. Updated Jan 2000.
