HISTORIC CEMETERY

Friends of Jacksonville's Historic Cemetery

You may view individual Player presentations from our past Meet the Pioneers Programs, along with some Promo videos of cemetery events and activities, by going to and enter Oregon History Tales in the search box, then click on the covered wagon to view individual videos. Our appreciation to Bill and Debbie Miller for making these videos available for us to share with you, as well as to Arlis Duncan, for her video of our 2019 program. 


Like so many other events, activities and plans, our Meet the Pioneer programs in 2020 and 2021 were cancelled due to the ongoing Covid virus. We are hopeful and will soon begin planning for the return of this very popular program on Friday, October 7, and Saturday, October 8, 2022. As more information becomes available this page will be updated to keep you informed. If all goes well, reservations and tickets will become available for purchase starting on Wednesday, September 7, 2022. Our Players and all volunteer staff anxiously await welcoming you back to Meet the Pioneers and the Silent City on the Hill.
