First interments date back to 1895. William Mitchell originally donated a five acre piece of land to the Presbyterian Church to use as a cemetery. These five acres still remain intact along with a small expansion. Several pioneer families living in the area at the time banded together to help create a final resting place for their loved ones. These families cleared the area where they along with several of their family members and friends would eventually be laid to rest. In 1900 a cemetery committee was formed. Little Mountain remained a private cemetery until 1985 that year the City of Edmonton became responsible for its maintenance and care. The many early pioneer families that are now laid to rest in this cemetery tell a story of early times in Alberta, the harshness of the climate, the struggles of war, the importance of family and loved ones that have long since passed.
