Gilmore Grave Yard also spelled Gilmour, is located on Rt. 161 near Centralia. About a 1/2 mile west of Centralia, there is a wooden fence on the south side of the road. At the west end of this fence, up on the hill, is the graveyard. There were quite a few small stones marking the graves, but no names. If you know of anyone buried here, please Contact Us.
