In about 1895, five Grand Army Posts in Seattle established this cemetery for the Civil War heroes of 1861-65. In 1922, Seattle city council turned the care and maintenance of the cemetery over to Seattle Parks Department. The volunteer group Friends of the GAR have been active in caring for the cemetery. The Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery is located in the north of the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle. 526 graves and a monument memorialize veterans of the Civil War. A small green space lies adjacent to the memorial site.
