Donations sought for state hospital cemetery renovation

July 5, 2011

BLACKFOOT — On a far corner of the State Hospital South grounds, well away from the public face of the facility, a dozen large trees stand sentinel.
Their branches stretch toward the sky, their leaves providing a tiny bit of shade.
A small sign declares "State Hospital South Cemetery, established 1886." A larger sign at the entrance awaits words. Two metals benches and a couple of small trees are new.
Few people know who is buried here. Fewer still know their stories.
Tracey Sessions, the administrator for State Hospital South, and members of her staff hope to change that.
