Ground broken for Blackfoot Veterans Cemetery

Representatives of the Idaho Division of Veterans Services (DVS) were in Blackfoot Thursday to launch construction of Idaho’s second State Veterans Cemetery.

The grounds are located on a 40 acre parcel of farm property directly south of the Idaho State Hospital South at 2245 Cromwell Lane.

According to the DVS, the initial phase of construction includes a main entrance, a committal shelter, roads, maintenance facility, assembly area and supporting infrastructure.

Once complete, the cemetery will offer 500 pre-placed crypts, 400 columbarium niches, and 150 in-ground plots for cremains.

The first phase of construction should be complete by Winter of 2020.
