From the Friends of Lone Fir Cemetery:
"Lone Fir Cemetery is the final resting place for many of Portland’s historic residents. Lone Fir is Portland’s oldest existing cemetery. For decades, it was the only cemetery. A true outdoor museum, Lone Fir reads like a history book on many levels, from pre-settlement days to the waves of pioneer settlement, industrial development, changing social structure, more waves of immigrants of all sorts, Masons, Woodsmen of the World."
