St. Thomas Memorial Cemetery
Established 1865
State and National Historic Site
3631'N 11426'W


The St. Thomas Memorial Cemetery located in Overton, Nevada, was the site of the
reinterments of graves from St. Thomas and Kaolin, Nevada in 1935. When Lake Mead
was formed from the creation of Hoover Dam, rising waters caused the abandoment of
two communities, St. Thomas and Kaolin which were eventually buried under Lake
Mead. Most of the people who were buried in each town's cemetery were reinterred to
this and other cemeteries. (
see Department of Interior report) Today, this cemetery is home to
former residents of St. Thomas and Kaolin, and their descendants.
