Pioneer Cemetery

14th and Madison 

Astoria Pioneer Cemetery was deeded by James Welch to Astoria on April 22, 1865. By 1891, 498 burials were recorded. There were also numerous unlisted interments. Bodies from abandoned cemeteries were brought here. Many graves and markers were later removed by the families. Use of the cemeteries was discontinued around 1900.

Month

This month, we're sharing our appreciation for our hard working Parks Maintenance Team: Facilities Coordinator Mark Montgomery, Grounds Coordinator Matt Moritz, and our seasonal crew: Chad Gallup, David Hoth, and Ted Ames (not pictured).  This small group cares for over 40 Park sites, provides Ocean View Cemetery's grounds and burial services, and maintains the ARC, AAC, and Lil' Sprouts facilities.  Thank you all for your hard work keeping our Parks and Recreation properties looking good and running smoothly!
