About the Association

Fairview Cemetery and Memorial Gardens is a 20-acre cemetery located in Wahpeton, North Dakota. Established in 1882, Fairview is the final resting place for many notable area residents.

We are a non-denominational, non-profit organization goverened by a nine-member volunteer board of directors, which represents many of the churches in our community.

Unlike cemeteries that are supported by individual congregations, funds for operational costs at Fairview are secured from lot and marker sales, interments, and gifts and memorials.
