About the event
Hillside Cemetery in Issaquah was originally used by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) and was later deeded to the City by the IOOF. The earliest burials here date back to 1890. Over the years, the cemetery has become the final resting place for nearly 4,000 people. Many of Hillside's current residents died too young, in mining accidents or epidemics or in childbirth. Others celebrated long lives, leaving memories and descendants.
Join us on Saturday, October 28 or Sunday the 29th, for a guided walk in Issaquah's Hillside Cemetery. You'll hear stories about Hillside Cemetery, the lives of some of those buried there, and what life was like in small-town Issaquah during the 1900s. Participants are limited to 20 people, so don't wait to purchase your tickets!
Candles provided; flashlights welcome, but no headlamps, please!
