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.Music
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call (541) 684-0949.
