Olalla Cemetery is at the top of the hill, north side of the hwy, overlooking Olalla Bay and the store.

TPCGS 1982: On the corner of Olalla Valley Road SE and Orchard Ave SE, across from the water.

Located on the Gig Harbor Peninsula just over the Pierce County line in Kitsap County. It sits high on a hill overlooking a small inlet in Puget Sound. It is a pioneer cemetery, overgrown and seemingly forgotten, with many stones tipped and broken or completely lost. Only one grave, that of a little Oriental boy, in a far corner of the cemetery is well kept.

One can approach the cemetery only by a narrow foot path up the side of the hill and through a wire and pipe gate on a post.
It was established, according to early records, at a meeting of the electors of School District #17 on February 2, 1901, and consists of one and one-half acres. The cemetery was abandoned in 1930 and there have been no burials in it since that date.
Inventoried by Puget Sound Genealogical Society in Feb 2005.

But Fraola Cemetery Assn owns Parcel No. 042202-1-014-2006, very nearby.
