The Bridgeport Cemetery is located just a short distance easterly from the middle of town. The cemetery site overlooks Bridgeport Valley and has a pristine view of the Sawtooth Mountains to the west. Originally it was located within the Bridgeport Townsite near the Community Center and park. Starting in the 1880's through to the mid 1930's it was relocated to it's current location, where it contains the gravesites of the area's historic early settlers and pioneers. Historic Plot Maps of that original cemetery are available in the links below. For current mapping contact Public Works Staff.
It is the responsibility of the plot requester, person / mortuary handling funeral arrangements to retain services to have the gravesite opened and closed. A listing of businesses that perform this type of work may be obtained from Public Works upon request.
An agent or officer from Public Works must mark plot perimeter prior to any work to be performed. Public Works also requests that whoever shall perform the opening and closing of a gravesite contact Public Works to notify as to when work will be performed. Once the burial is complete, Public works will again mark the site for the placement of the marker.
All associated paperwork must be completed and received in the Public Works offices in Bridgeport (P. O. Box 457,74 North School Street, Bridgeport, CA, 93517) prior to any burial is to occur.
