Grove City Cemetery, Blackfoot, Bingham, Idaho, USA

Notes: The first known burials in Blackfoot were in a field west of the 500 block of North Maple Street. The field was called Montgomery's Burying Ground. Later this site became a park with swimming pool and tennis courts. These were removed in 1987 when it became the site of the new Bingham County Courthouse.

On May 4, 1888, the newly organized I.O.O.F. Lodge bought 10 acres of land northeast of Blackfoot from Mrs. George Houck at a cost of $125. It was known as the Odd Fellows Cemetery (and sometimes as the Silent City of the Dead). Inhabitants of Montgomery's Burying Ground were moved to the new cemetery. In 1888 bodies from Eagle Rock (Idaho Falls) and Pocatello were also moved to the Odd Fellows Cemetery. Bodies from other locations were moved in from time to time, including all the soldiers from Potters Field. In 1903 the Odd Fellows sold the cemetery to David H. Biethan for $1,250. In 1908 the City of Blackfoot bought the cemetery and renamed it the Grove City Cemetery.
