The Old Burying Ground


Salem Pioneer Cemetary 1, originally uploaded by gogouci.

Salem Pioneer Cemetery
Corner of South Commercial & Hoyt Streets
Salem, OR


Today a small group of volunteers decended on the cemetery to straighten and clean some of the neglected headstones and grave sites. Pioneer Cemetery's most notable occupant is Jason Lee, founder of both the city of Salem and Willamette University.

Your blog has been included in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the CDPB lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

I do love the old cemetaries. We have quite a few small ones out here in our valley. Great shot. MB
