Fairview Cemetery is situated in the heart of old town Council Bluffs, Iowa, which in the early days was named Kanesville. When Morman settlers first stopped in Kanesville, the hill the cemetery is situated on served as their campground. Many of their dead are buried here, and as the plaque at the cemetery claims (last photo on this page), Pottawatamie Indians and other settlers may also be buried here. 

The houses around the cemetery are worth seeing, so if you visit the cemetery be sure to notice the historic neighborhood that surround it.

The cemetery has a kiosk with a map of the entire cemetery and the plot numbers. The Council Bluffs offices have the cemetery records; the second picture on this page has the phone number for that office.
