About Us

Unique to the community, Mountain View Cemetery is a peaceful, quiet, beautiful setting, nestled on Auburn's west hill overlooking Mt. Rainier and the Green River Valley. The park-like setting includes rolling well-kept lawns, landscaped flowering gardens, and other features attesting to the value of life. The Cemetery serves many area funeral homes and offers a full range of above-ground and below-ground interment options, including Trigard Burial and Cremation Vaults for families choosing either casket or urn placement. Military veterans and their spouses have the option of placement in a designated veteran's section. "Child's Place" is an area reserved specifically for children. View the Photo Tour.
ForestWalk offers unique landscapes, memorialization, and cremation placement options. View the ForestWalk Tour.

A professional staff of six conducts over 300 interments annually and ensures fiscal responsibility. As an endowed care facility, all above ground structures, roadways turf and landscaping are maintained by City staff now and in the future.
