Lone Fir Cemetery
Lone Fir Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in the Western United States with the first burial taking place in 1846. The cemetery has been in operation since 1855 and was ultimately named “Lone Fir” because of the single tree on the site at that time. Many of Portland’s founding families are buried among the 25,000 graves on the thirty acres in SE Portland. Earlier this afternoon I took a ride on my bike and ended up at the Lone Fir and snapped a few photos.
