The Mottsville Cemetery is an historic cemetery in the Carson Valley. It is located on the
original site of the town of Mottsville, which was founded by Hiram and Israel Mott in the 1850s.
The cemetery was started when the infant child of Israel Mott died and was buried in the
yard. The cemetery now contains many pioneer settlers, as well as lifelong Valley residents
from the 20th century.
