Eugene Masonic Cemetery Afternoon Sunshine

Music to Die For this Sunday

Hope Abbey’s marble walls provide incredible acoustics for small instrumental groups, as we’ll hear this coming Sunday, July 14, at 2:00, when the Music To Die For series presents the Sweet Winds Quintet. The group, whose members play flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn and bassoon, enjoys a wide range of music, from classical to modern, ragtime to jazz, pop and movie music. Come and share their musical gift to our community. Doors open at 1:30. (Please park on city streets, as no parking is available in the cemetery.) (read more)

About the cemetery

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 chartered 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 with the Masonic Lodge.

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. Email emca1859@gmail.com or call (541) 684-0949.
