OHCA meetings include entertaining and informative programs, business meetings, and optional cemetery tours. Three times each year you can gather with others who share your interest in preserving, protecting and appreciating Oregon’s most vulnerable historic sites.

Tri-Annual Newsletter, the OHCA Ledger

The most complete and up-to-date source of news about Oregon cemeteries and cemetery associations, restoration, upcoming events and programs, cleaning techniques, resources, ongoing and completed projects, educational programs, errant tombstones, as well as book lists, reviews, and ceme-queries.

Referrals

The OHCA maintains files for every cemetery in Oregon. Names of those interested in individual cemeteries are added to these files and made available to persons doing research or wishing to form cemetery associations. We also maintain lists of experts able to assist with specific questions or problems.

OHCA Library and Archives

The growing OHCA library includes books and videos about individual cemeteries, preservation, history, restoration, rubbings, vandalism, cemetery plantings, and much more. In addition, many OHCA programs have been video taped and are available by library loan to members. The library's materials are now housed with the Geneological Forum of Oregon (GFO) library, in the Ford Building, Suite B18, at 2505 SE 11th Ave, Portland, OR 97202. 

Become part of the solution to the problems faced by Oregon’s cemeteries. Plagued by vandalism, neglect, greed, and the ravages of time, our historic burial places are rapidly disappearing. You can do something to help!
