While staying at the Super 8 Motel, I had a little time to kill while my husband finished packing up. So I wandered over to the east, where wedged between construction trailers and piles of dumped gravel I found this gem of history. Although it...More

An interesting side note for Baker. It is a cemetery, in my mind cemeteries are not something that are real exciting.

I was so disappointed in the cemetery. It has been poorly maintained, is very small and lacks atmosphere of the times when souls were put to rest there. I read the marker and clambored around a bit for a quick visit. Perhaps I was expecting...More

If you go, take time to read the signs. They explain the history of the Chinese workers who were once buried here, before the bodies were exhumed and taken back to China for burial. There are lists of the names. It is a "real" cemetary...More

This is a very sad part of the Baker City history. The Chinese immigrants that helped build the city were buried without ceremony in this tiny cemetery. Years later, the bones were exhumed, consecrated and returned to China for proper burial. What remains is a...More

A must see if you visit Baker City Oregon. To know the story and what happened so long ago was well worth the visit
