This community treasure is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Remarkably, it is also an active, operating cemetery. Established in 1859, Eugene??s first cemetery includes pioneers, such as city founder Eugene Skinner, and modern notables like blues disc jockey ??Rooster? Gavin Fox.
The cemetery retains ??Masonic? in its name, as an important historic reference, but is no longer officially affiliated. Through the on-going work of many, the historical importance and natural beauty of this woodland setting are being rediscovered and protected.
