Welcome to the Oregon Historic Cemeteries Association

The OHCA is a 501(c)3 public non-profit organization. Our purpose is to educate and publicize the historical and cultural heritage in Oregon cemeteries and to promote the preservation, protection, and restoration of Oregon cemeteries.

We've achieved this in the past by providing programs, speakers, workshops, tours, seminars, events, publications, and other activities. Now we are facilitating traditional efforts by utilizing the website's capabilities to inform, connect, share, educate, motivate, enthuse & entertain our members and others. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for improvements to the site.
  • The CEC--Cemetery Events Calendar, listing tours, events, programs etc. in Oregon cemeteries
  • "The Ledger"--member e-blasts on cemeteries, associations, books, queries, errant tombstones.
  • Grave News--cemetery articles, Metro Report (government caretaker of 14 cemeteries)
  • Legislative Leanings--changes in laws/policies being considered, proposed, or enacted
  • Cemetery Websites--links to Oregon cemeteries' websites

Help preserve the past for the future.
