Fairview Cemetery, Owyhee County, Idaho, USA
Idaho

Fairview Cemetery is a late 1800's cemetery supporting the siliver mining town of Fairview, Idaho, near present-day ghost-town Silver City, Idaho, USA.  Fairview Idaho is said to have once hosted over 100 buildings but doesn't exist today - most of it lost to fires.  The cemetery remains, is fenced off and marked with a simple sign and all but 4 of the graves are unmarked (unknown).  It is not known how many are buried here but there are at least 30-35 as there are this many makers.  The cemetery was used in the 1870's.  This burial ground is near the Oro Fino Mine on War Eagle Mountain.

Fairview Cemetery has very few headstones left. From Silver City take the road that would take you back to Murphy. The first road that goes off to the right is the Fairview Rd. The cemetery is on the left hand side overlooking a spectacular view of the valley. It is posted Fairview Cemetery.

More About Idaho

Idaho is a state located in the northwestern region of the United States of America.  Idaho is the 14th largest state by area, ranks 39th by population and 53rd by population density of the 50 United States.  Idaho was the 43rd state to be admitted into the Union, on July 3, 1890.  Idaho is landlocked, being bordered by Canada on the north and the states of Washington and Oregon on the west, Nevada and Utah on the south and Montana and Wyoming on the east.  Idaho is nicknamed "The Gem State" because nearly every known gemstone is found within the state.  Idaho is also famous for producing about one third of all potatoes grown in the USA.  Idaho also hosts the largest barrel cheese factory in the world, producing 120K metric tons of cheese per year.  There is some ambiguity as to where the name "Idaho" came from, but it is generally believed to have simply been made up by George M. Willing.  There is a possibility it was derived from a Native American phrase.  Idaho is very mountainous and is a popular outing destination of the outdoorsman.  The state population was about 1.58M in July 2011 with 84% being Caucasian, 11.2% Hispanic and 1.1% Native American.  The state capital and largest city is Boise.Source: wikipedia
