Sunset Pioneer Cemetery

The Sunset Pioneer Cemetery was originally situated behind the Emanuel German Evangelical Church, which was built in 1886.  Valri Darling, THA President, wrote an article for "Tigard Life" describing the Cemetery's history.  The church was torn down in 1919 when Highway 99W was being paved and widened.  For further information and a list of burials, see the "Tigard Historical Quarterly" Fall 2017 on our website.  These photos were taken by THA photographer Dennis Shen on August 2, 2017.  Click here to view photos.
