Dundee Pioneer Cemetery

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

At the Dundee Pioneer Cemetery (with a deer sauntering across) (bobcat)

Description

The Pioneer Cemetery in Dundee occupies a prime lot on a ridgecrest along the northwest boundary of the City of Dundee. The forested west side of the crest above Harvey Creek offers no views, but from the high point in the cemetery at a grove of oaks, one can see across the Willamette River to the Mount Jefferson area of the Cascades.

The cemetery was established in 1855. There are numerous headstones from the 19th century as well as family plots that span several generations. A small slab of stone marks the last resting place of an “Unknown Indian.”
