The Mosier Pioneer Cemetery Committee was created by the City of Mosier City Council to advise the council on issues regarding the Mosier Pioneer Cemetery. The City Council is responsible for all final actions.
Moved by the request of a Mosier family to allow the burial of a family member in the Mosier Pioneer Cemetery, the 2004 Mosier City Council voted unanimously to open the cemetery to new cremains burials. The history of our town did not end in 1901 when the last person was buried in the cemetery and we who call Mosier home are still creating the rich history of our community. There are new generations who will wish to be buried with their families in their community. To bring life to our beautiful cemetery, we must allow it to live again.
The Pioneer Cemetery Committee, sanctioned by the City Council, is working to bring this vision to reality. We are working with the State to become certified as an operating cemetery and we are diligently researching all aspects of the cemetery’s history. We are indebted to the work that has been done before by Willis Gholston, Anita Drake, Jim Deaton, and Elizabeth Daniels. Sally Donovan, a local Historic Preservationist, has donated many hours of consultation work.
Our meetings are posted on this site and are open to the public. We welcome everyone who loves this cemetery to participate.
