“Lovely quite place”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Care of foliage and quite-tude. It was nice... but only go if you are near the area. It is a bit off the beaten track, and its a sad story.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

If you like local history, you will find this interesting! A monument to early pioneers who lived and died there.

“I'd skip it another time”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Trying to decide which Gold Beach attractions to see on out way to Coos Bay is not a tough decision as there as so few; however, we did stop by for 15 minutes to view this graveyard and historical site. I would not have done it had I know how limited this very small site is and it's narrow focus. However it never hurts one to learn a little bit of obscure history now and then. The site needs some tender loving care from a volunteer association in town. Hard to get excited about having a picnic at a grave site.

“No reason to stop here”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

I do not know why this is on the maps, but it is a small graveyard with nothing to see. Don't bother.

“a piece of oregon history”
Reviewed 22 December 2012

no tourists, there are no rides, food booths or gift shops. but it's an incredible piece of oregon's history. if you want to know what happened to the wife & daughter, stop by the curry county museum in town.
