The Old Scotch Church CemeterySince the first burial in 1876, the Old Scotch Church Cemetery has provided a resting place for the remains of both church members and residents of the community. Near towering trees, rolling farmland, and a historic country church, rows of notable markers and dignified graves -- including those of an Oregon founder and seven Civil War veterans -- grace a park-like setting.
Still active, with burials continuing and grave spaces available for sale, the cemetery is operated by experienced volunteers who view it as more than merely a picturesque, historic place. Abiding by the statutes of the State of Oregon relating to cemetery operations, maintaining the necessary permanent records, and keeping the grounds in good condition, the Old Scotch Church sees its cemetery as a way of providing comfort to those who mourn and a fitting memorial to inspire future generations.
