Long Description:
100 Mile House Cemetery is in the Cariboo Regional District of British Columbia. There is interesting history about this region as Mile Houses were established along the old Cariboo Trail during the Cariboo gold rush beginning 1860. There were many roadhouses along this route each numbered by how many miles it was from Mile "0" at Lillooet. The route was frequently used by stagecoaches and mule trains.

Currently there are approximately 1,900 residents in 100 Mile House primarily farming, forestry and mining support the community.

The 100 Mile House Cemetery was most likely established around 1966 based on the known burial records. The cemetery is still active with the most current in 2018. There are 586 known interments that are mostly flat headstones in well maintained grassy areas. The only large trees that remain are near the entrance. There is a circle roadway in the main part of the cemetery.
