Spanish Fork Pioneer Cemetery


Mill Fork Cemetery

This cemetery is technically associated with Thistle, a town that was destroyed in 1984 after a landslide created a dam in Spanish Fork Canyon following a very wet winter and rapid spring warming which caused fast snow melt, which flooded out both east and south of the present-day junction for US-89 at US-6, and the cemetery was before the flooding more off the old highway alignment for US 6 which ran south and below where it does now, the new road put the cemetery within easy access for those seeking to find graves within it.
