Historic Cemeteries Program

Find, designate, and preserve historic cemeteries!

The Oregon historic cemeteries program, created by the Oregon legislature, provides resources including grants to people and organizations caring for the cemeteries.

Any cemetery that has at least one burial of a person who died before February 14, 1909 and is listed with Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries, is historic.

Historic cemetery designation signs are available. Contact the coordinator to get one.

Historic Cemeteries can also be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
