Iman Cemetery

Iman Cemetery

The Iman Cemetery is in Stevenson Washington. It was established near the North East Corner of the Iman Donation Land Claim in 1901 as the family plot of Felix G. Iman and his wife Margaret Windsor Iman. In the 70’s, the cemetery plot was owned by Edith McCafferty (Holien), who along with Tonnie Lundy maintained it until at least 1972. They would not allow non-family members to be buried there, as none of the families would help maintain it. Both women are now buried in the cemetery themselves.

It was given over the County in 1974 and is now formally known as the Stevenson Iman Cemetery. The physical address is 42 Holly Street Stevenson, WA 98648. The nearby Carson Eyman Cemetery in Carson was established by Felix’s brother, Louis/Lewis (who preferred the older family spelling of Eyman,) about the same time.

The Skamania County Cemetery District was formed to take care of this cemetery, and half a dozen other cemeteries that the county gained in the same year. Plots are available in it by calling 509.427.4114, or visiting the office at 802 Metzger Road Carson, WA 98610 M-Th, 8am-4pm.
Just under 100 plots are taken, about 50 of which are Iman family or related to the Iman family. There is room for about 400 more plots in total.

As it is located next to Rock Creek Falls, the cemetery is mostly visited by local residents passing through to enjoy the popular and scenic swimming hole nearby.
