Ashland Cemetery

I am a big fan of cemeteries. I find them extremely beautiful. Ashland has one of the older ones in the west with graves dating back to 1860 and many of the gravestones coming before 1900. There is no better time of year to check out a graveyard than autumn.

“Famous” people in this graveyard include the Wagners, J. C. Tolman, Lindsay Applegate, and Abel Helman. You probably haven’t heard of any of them unless you are from Southern Oregon though. Much in the area is named after the above people.

    The older, the more picturesque. I love the historical value of cemetaries too. Nice picture of those older grave markers.

    What a beautiful cemetery! I am pretty certian I have several relatives buried there. Most were buried on the old family farm. But, I was told some are buried in the old Ashland Cemetery. I will have to check the next time I am there.
