From I-90 take the first Medical Lake exit as you are driving south from Spokane WA. Continue on Hwy 902 for several miles, passing turns into Medical Lake town, until you see the sign which tells you to turn left to Eastern State Hospital. Continue on this road until you see Howard Street on your left. Make a right turn into the State grounds.

This cemetery is on the Eastern Washington State Hospital Grounds, and permission to visit must be received at the main office as you come in. Volunteer Services will direct you if you cannot find it.

These burials are for those who have lived in Lakeland Village. Lakeland Village is a state facility for the mentally retarded, and perhaps were abandoned by family. Most residents are buried outside the facility by family in a cemetery of their choice. This facility was first called the Custodial School starting in 1906, but in 1915 was changed to Lakeland Village. It might have had other names in the years between.

The burials in all of the cemeteries on Eastern State grounds are marked with a small cement marker with a number on them. Over the years these small markers became buried underground, and in this case, also under manicured lawn. Because of this they could not be found without the map, measuring and digging.

This cemetery has always been kept up as far as being green and the lawn mowed, but it looks more like a park, than a cemetery, and there were no visible markers for many years. In the last years they have had volunteers come in and lift the markers so they are more visible.

If there is an asterisk, I have the photo of that stone, and found it in this cemetery when I visited. The other records were found in my research as I continued to read more cemeteries. I received no records from the staff at Eastern State Hospital. This also may mean there are errors in my work, so do not take it for absolute fact, without further research on your part. If anyone has a name they wish to share, I will be very happy to add it.

I visited this cemetery in July of 2002 and again in 2003.
