Eugene Masonic Cemetery Afternoon Sunshine

The gates to the cemetery will be open from 11:30 to 5:00 on Sunday and Monday. Pedestrian access will be as usual. Taps will be played at noon on Monday, but no other events are planned. Hope Abbey will be opened on request, to place remembrances for loved ones.

**PLEASE NOTE: All last Sunday Hope Abbey open houses have been called off until further notice.**

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 artist Maude Kerns. The cemetery retains “Masonic” in its name, as an important historic reference, but is no longer officially affiliated.

Music to Die For is a free, all-acoustic summer concert series in Hope Abbey. The hour-long concerts are held at 2 pm on the last Sunday of each month, from June through October.

Donations to Eugene Masonic Cemetery Association qualify for the Oregon Cultural Trust tax credit. See OCT’s web site for more information on how to participate.

In addition to traditional burial plots, the Eugene Masonic Cemetery offers a variety of services and memorials. Our administrator will be happy to help you with your choices.
