Clarksville (Mormon Tavern) Cemetery

The Clarksville Cemetery was once called the Mormon Tavern Cemetery. The photo below of the Mormon Tavern may have been taken after it was converted to a residence. The tavern was located in the middle of what is now Highway 50. See the Mormon Tavern historical marker on Joerger Cutoff Road just south of Hwy 50.

Below is a letter that was sent to the County of El Dorado from the El Dorado County Pioneer Cemeteries Commission in response to a request for comments regarding a commercial project proposed for a parcel adjacent to the Clarksville Cemetery. The project was subsequently abandoned.
