Thurston County: ‘Thanks, Realtors’

Nov 29, 2017 - 03:20 PM

Members of Thurston County REALTORS® Association were recognized for their work to restore and preserve Mima Prairie Pioneer Cemetery at the County Board of Commissioners weekly meeting yesterday. The real estate professionals received a plaque of appreciation from the county Public Works/Parks and Trails division.

Realtors have made their care of this historic cemetery an annual project for the past six years, with scores of Association members volunteering their personal equipment, time and muscle in the old orchard where some of the area’s first settlers are buried.

Mima Prairie Pioneer Cemetery is located in the middle of Weyerhaeuser land in southwest Thurston County. In 1869, John and Polly Laws deeded the property to the county for the expressed purpose of a cemetery.
