This is an unusual cemetery dating back to pioneer days. It is located on a tall hill overlooking the beautiful Victorian era town of Ferndale. From the top you can see all the way to the ocean.

A small drizzle through a large part of Ferndale history. Hilly, however looking at its beauty from flat land is worth the stop.

We stumbled on the Ferndale cemetery while in town on a rainy day. This is such a cool place with tons of history. If you like old cemeteries, you need to stop here.

The cemetery is located just up the fill from the main street. Located on a hill that give you a great view of the town and surrounding valley. There a huge range of dates when the people were laid to rest.

Really well-cared for and a gentle place to wander quietly. Parking is okay in the streets nearby and from the top of the cemetery you can get a nice elevated view over the township.

Very moving, touching and a different way to get familiar with the culture of Ferndale. If you are ever close, you need to visit.

We enjoyed wandering around the cemetery. It is on a hill so you can get your work out in at the same time. Some very old graves. Some told of what country the person originated from. We only noticed a few recent grave sites. Not...More
