“Very interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

The Jackson Pioneer Cemetery was very interesting in that there was a lot of history that went back to the early gold mining days of the early 1920's. No grass or nice green lawns, but very interesting.

“For the History Buffs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

Walking through this cemetery and reading the headstones is a true experience. There is a history lesson here on immigration to this area due to the Gold Rush. You come away with a better appreciation of what the immigrants went through as they came here seeking a better life and for many seeking their fortune.

“A lot of history is here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2012

Just a few minutes from home, the Jackson Pioneer Cemetery dates to the beginnings of Jackson in the mid 1800s. Look around and see the pioneers of Jackson who have streets named after them. Within the grounds is the pioneer Jewish cemetery for the once thriving community who also erected one of the first Synagogs west of the Mississippi. It the headstones could just talk...

“it's a cemetery”

interesting headstones. If you can do head stone rubs with charcoal on paper, it's kinda fun.
