Spotlight on historic sites: Union Fort Cemetery

Located near the Sandy Utah Cottonwood Creek Stake Center at 1535 East Creek Road, the Union Fort Cemetery in Sandy, Utah, is one of the oldest pioneer cemeteries in the state. Memorialized with a number of pioneer plaques, the cemetery is the final resting place for some 170 pioneers, including Green Flake and Hark Lay, two of the three African-American members of the first pioneer company. The first burial was made in 1851. The "beautiful, little cemetery" is maintained by the stake and others, said stake president William R. Walker.
