Memorial Day Weekend to be Observed at City of Boise Cemeteries

May 22, 2023

Memorial Day weekend will be observed at Morris Hill Cemetery (317 N. Latah St.) Saturday, May 27 through Monday, May 29. Staff will be on site to assist the public in identifying grave locations.

Hours at the cemetery will be:

  • 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 27
  • 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 28
  • 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, May 29 (Memorial Day)

Two other cemeteries maintained by Boise Parks and Recreation, Pioneer Cemetery (460 E. Warm Springs Ave.) and Fort Boise Military Reserve Cemetery (1101 N. Mountain Cove Rd.), will be open to the public Memorial Day weekend, but as is the case each year, those locations will not be staffed.

Visitors are welcome to place artificial flowers, flags, fresh flowers, and wreaths graveside at city cemeteries. No glass or breakable containers are allowed.  All mementos must be picked up by June 5 for those who wish to recollect them.


A volunteer group plans to conduct its annual Memorial Day ceremony, which includes a raising of the American flag, a eulogy and gun salute, on Monday, May 29 at 11:45 a.m. at the Silent Camp in Morris Hill Cemetery. A second ceremony is also planned at 12:45 p.m. at Fort Boise Military Reserve Cemetery.
