Nestled in Southeast Portland, Lone Fir Cemetery is more than just a cemetery. It’s also one of Portland’s richest outdoor history museums and botanic gardens.

Lone Fir reads like a good book, telling the story of the many eras of settlement and development that have transformed the Portland area since the cemetery was founded in 1855. This 30-acre property is the resting place for more than 25,000 people, including famous Portlanders with names like Lovejoy and Hawthorne. Visitors will also find notable trees and shrubs, giving Lone Fir the feel of an arboretum.

Located at Southeast Stark Street and 26th Avenue, Lone Fir serves as a venue for historical and cultural events, as well as much-needed park space for visitors and area residents.
