PDX Rambles > Lone Fir Cemetery
by Rainbow Bobbins
After putting in some overtime at the office on Sunday I managed to get out in time to enjoy the last autumn rays of the day. I have passed Lone Fir Cemetery many times and have always wanted to stop. Sunday was my day — and a good one too- it was a perfect sunny fall day. Lone Fir is on 30 acres and is Portland’s oldest cemetery. Despite its name it is now fill with trees – many of which have amazing fall colors right now. I noticed quite a few people hanging out. Pretty, peaceful, park-like with some old PDX history. The first burial here was in 1846.
