Mountain View Cemetery was originally owned by Thomas Evans, a Corbett pioneer. Evans farmed produce and planted prune orchards as well as served as the first president of The Columbia Telephone Company. Located between Smith and Evans Road in Corbett, this small cemetery is now managed by Metro. The cemetery was founded in 1888.
The cemetery is open each day of the week from 7 am until sunset. Photography and videography is restricted to scenes of the landscape, nature and architectural designs. There is no tobacco, illegal drugs or alcohol consumption allowed on site. There are no pets allowed, even on a leash. One is not allowed to burn incense or candles at any time and artificial flowers are not allowed between March 1 and Nov. 15 except for the three weeks of Memorial Day remembrance.
Many infants, young children, teenagers, men and women are laid to rest in this little cemetery. What I find to be interesting is the fact I have been able to recognize numerous names of folks that have gone before me. What I want to ask myself is, what kind of a legacy can and WILL I leave behind in this fabulous community that my family has the privilege of calling home?
