Full of Life

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.

The remaining concerts this season are:
September 24 — Ambassador Musicians: Classical and popular chamber music by members of the Eugene-Springfield Youth Orchestra;
October 29 — Western Tanagers: Their repertoire ranges from Appalachian to Cajun to Swedish fiddle tunes with some early 50s pop music as well as some bluegrass and country.

Seating is limited, so it is well to arrive quite early.
