Pleasant Grove Cemetery
Today, the burial ground remains the primary connection to the Pleasant Grove community. Although some of the many unmarked burials in the cemetery predate it, the earliest marked grave dates to 1871. The earliest birth year found on a gravestone is that of Clairbourn Scroggins, born in 1799. Among those buried here are military veterans of conflicts from the Civil War to the present. The cemetery is a link to their memory and to the history of Pleasant Grove.
