The South Weber Pioneer Cemetery was started as a private facility on the Firth property. It is believed that the cemetery was abandoned after 1927 because of a high water table, due to the Weber/Davis Canal.
Cemetery maintenance was a Scout project and a community service project for many years. The U.S. Army Reserve united worked on restoring the cemetery from 1973-1975. Then, in the late 1970's it was deeded to the City of South Weber (once they reached 3rd class city status) by former owner Brent Winchester, and they maintain the lawns and irrigation system. Grave maintenance is currently a family responsibility.
The Cemetery is located south of the Old Morrisite Fort. There is at least one burial from the White on White War of 1862.
