Introducing you to Mt. Angel Cemetery, Hubbard Cemetery, Champoeg Pioneer Cemetery, and the St. Paul Cemetery. Cemeteries in Portland are cool, but they can be a bit overcrowded. This piece encourages you to journey just a bit farther into the Willamette Valley, and explore Oregon more.
- It’s not so scary to be surrounded by the dead on a sunny day, especially in the Willamette Valley. Graveyards are a peaceful place to reflect on the past and imagine the legacy that you will leave in the future.
- You feel really, really alive in a graveyard. It helps put things into perspective
- It’s fascinating! The names, the years, the places, and the quotes can be mysterious and thought-provoking.
- I guarantee at these four finds- no one else will be there. It’s like having a whole private park to yourself with the last marks of legacies left from 1800’s, 1900’s, and more!
These 4 finds have lots of character & great views along the way. I highly recommend starting your journey in Mt. Angel. They have great beer and great food to help fuel your adventure throughout the day.
