The Pioneer Cemetery on Camano Island

One of the interesting locations on Camano Island is the beautifully kept Pioneer Cemetery. The five acre graveyard has a white picket fence along the road and has  a brick column set-back entrance. It is across the road from the Visitor’s center and park.

The gates were closed and locked, so we did not enter the cemetery grounds. Those interned cover nearly 150 years. The oldest marked stone dates from 1880. Records of those offer a remarkable insight into the history of Camano Island.

Veterans from WWI, WWII, and Korea rest here. The earliest birth date listed is from 1827. Recommended is this website with a total listing of the markers in the cemetery. The research was performed (cemetery walked) in December of 2008.
