Mormon Island Relocation Cemetery


Mormon Island Relocation Cemetery is one several El Dorado County cemetery locations we were given access to for after hour investigation.

Mormon Island is unique. It was specifically created to relocate the residents of several historic cemeteries when the Army Corp of Engineers started work on the Folsom Dam.

during our visit we found many gravestones with no names. How sad to have your “final resting place” be up rooted and then due to negelence not be able to mark their graves properly.

Please stay tuned for more pictures, stories and evidence.
