Malaga Pioneer Cemetery was originally located on the knoll above and due east of the fire house on West Malaga and Firehouse Road.  The land was owned by Wenatchee Sand and Gravel who later moved the remaining graves to the far west edge of their property near the substation off West Malaga Road.  Many of those buried there had already been relocated in other cemeteries by surviving family members.  The two acres then  in use were donated in 1902 by I. M. Deerfield and wooden crosses were placed on the graves..  The current Malaga Pioneer Cemetery is located southwest of the Malaga Post Office between Malaga and Dixie Lane.  In Malaga, from the intersection of the Alcoa Hwy and West Malaga Road, go south .2 of a mile.  The cemetery is on the left. but has no access.  The site can be viewed by climbing up the steep road bank on the South side of the road.
