To reach Peck from Orofino take Hwy 12 west for about 10 miles, turning left or south onto Big Canyon Road. Continue for several more miles until you come to Peck. To reach the cemetery, in Peck take Elmwood Street west winding around the hill. Stay on the dirt road for about a mile and you will see the cemetery on your left up the hill.

This is not a district cemetery, it is a community cemetery for the small town of Peck. The city of Peck appointed a volunteer Board of Directors in 1994.

The Peck Cemetery was first used for interment in the early 1900s. The cemetery has received minimal care down through the years until that time. City of Peck has now underwritten all expenses for maintainance. I found it in good condition when I visited.

There s a sign at the cemetery with some locations of the burials, but it reveals there are many unmarked graves. I found 18 markers with Unknown on them. If anyone has proof and information of a burial which I do not have, do contact me and I would consider adding it to my work. I compared my work with the city records and did find 3 names which had no stone in their listing.

I walked and read this cemetery Jun 30, 2007. It consists of all existing and legible headstone or marker readings.
