Idaho State Veterans Cemetery


The Stars & Stripes flies in silent vigil 24 hours a day on a magnificent hilltop overlooking the Idaho State Veterans Cemetery. Set against a backdrop of native grasses, green hills and the rugged Boise Foothills, the 76.5 acre cemetery offers a peaceful place of solitude and beauty for friends and family members of those laid to rest here.

The cemetery is located adjacent to the Dry Creek Cemetery just north of Hill Road and east of Horseshoe Bend Road in Northwest Boise. The land on which it is built includes approximately 40 acres donated in 2002 by the J.L Terteling Company, with the remaining acreage being purchased from the Dry Creek Cemetery District.

The Cemetery was made possible by a grant from the Veterans Administration, State Cemetery Grants Program which funded 100 percent of the design, construction and equipment costs associated with developing the facility. It was dedicated to the State of Idaho in 2004 by then-Governor Dirk Kempthorne.

Public Event Policies

All requests for public events must be submitted on the Public Event Request form.

The Cemetery is the final resting place for Idaho veterans and their families. All events must be appropriate for a cemetery honoring veterans and preserve the dignity, beauty, safety, and security of the Cemetery. The Division Administrator has determined that events primarily involving a protest against public policies or practices are not appropriate for the Cemetery and will refer such request to other public forums such as the Idaho State Capitol and its grounds.  IDAPA § 21-01-04(50)(4), 2010.
