Cemeteries in Oregon

Oregon cemeteries offer a variety of amenities and aesthetics. Read on to learn more about cemetery options within the state of Oregon.

Choosing a Cemetery in Oregon

Oregon is a jewel in the Pacific Northwest, known for its diverse landscape that includes forests, mountains, farms and beaches. Those interested in American history might like to know that Oregon has more ghost towns than any other state. And those who simply want a picturesque final resting place will find that Oregon cemeteries provide the perfect setting.

For example, in Hillsboro 20 minutes west of Portland and an hour drive away from the Pacific Ocean, residents appreciate the lush greens and a history of agriculture, and Fir Lawn Memorial Park overlooks the grounds of the beautiful golf course next door. Medford is known for a commitment to the arts and fine wine, with a Craterian Theater hosting multiple performances throughout the year and the city hosting an abundance of wineries and scenic views. And Memory Garden Memorial Park in Medford doesn’t disappoint, with a stained-glass replica of Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper," accompanied by a sound and light show.

Salem, the capital city of Oregon, boasts beautiful parks, walking or hiking trails, and wildflower gardens in and around the city. This respect for nature reflects the strong Native American presence in the area. It is home to many Native American artists and memorials. Salem's Restlawn Memorial Gardens overlooks the lush Willamette Valley, previously inhabited by the Kalapuya people, while Medford's Hillcrest Memorial Park is located in the Rogue River Valley.
