Fillmore Cemetery

Io Landscape Architecture prepared the National Register nomination and a Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) report for the Fillmore City Cemetery.

The Fillmore City Cemetery is the first cemetery in Utah listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  It is significant for its association with events and historical figures important to the settlement, politics/ government, and religious and social history of the state of Utah and the city of Fillmore, which was the territorial capital at the time the cemetery was begun.  The cemetery is also significant as a vernacular landscape exemplifying the evolution and adaptation of general cemetery design trends and ornamentation by Mormon colonial villagers as well as for the variety of design in the headstones.
