The Moyie cemetery is about one mile (1.6 Km) south of the town of Moyie BC. The cemetery will be on the left side of the road going south on (3/95) in a grove of trees. Small picket fences surround some of the graves. The markers range from hand-inscribed wood to marble and other stone. Dates range from 1900 to 2009. The last casket burial is believed to have been in 1948. Since that time ashes have been interred. The cemetery is now considered "inactive" and has been designated an historical site. The entrance is about 50 yards (45.7 meters) north of the cemetery next to the ruins of an old stone building. Park and walk to the cemetery.

We visited the cemetery July 19, 2023. The Community group doing the maintenance is doing a fantastic job. There are grave markers dated as recently as 2021. I have a memory from decades ago, of an informational plaque, that stated Smallpox was a major cause of death around the turn of the 20th century. I did not see this plaque yesterday, and wondered if I was mis-remembering. If you visit, the pull off area is small, good for only 2-3 vehicles, and traffic is often heavy on the highway. The paths in the cemetery are fairly rough and uneven, so watch your step, if you have a walking stick, bring it along.
