West Mountain Cemetery
West Mountain Lutheran Church and Cemetery was founded in 1887 by Norwegian immigrants on land donated by one of the founders, Sigvart Olson. A few burials at the cemetery took place prior to 1887. The church was removed from the property in 1975, but the cemetery continues to be well kept.
The cemetery is located in the North 1/2 of the Southwest Quarter of Section 14 of East Alma Township approximately 6 miles Northeast of the Village of Milton. The coordinates are 48 40.620 Latitude and -97 58.242 Longitude.
The marked graves were cataloged on June 1, 2003 by the writer and updated again in 2005. The information for the Cemetery plot map and additional information on unmarked graves was graciously provided by Russell Dunford of Milton, North Dakota.

Thank You to Cindy LaFrenz Hryzan for providing updated information on the Simonson burials.
