Ola Cemetery

gate sign

The Ola Cemetery is adjacent to the historic Ola Church on the south side of Ola, on the Sweet-Ola Road. It is supported by a taxing district. The collection at the Ola Community Hall includes obituaries and photos of most, if not all, of the people buried in the cemetery as well as other local historic photographs. In 2012 Kathy Strickland won Preservation Idaho's Orchid award for her work preserving the stories of the people buried here. See also Messenger Index story.

Photographed November 2009 - If you see any errors, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you have better photos than any I have taken, I would be happy to use them. Sharon McConnel
