Search Bridal Veil Cemetery:

Located on the Columbia River bluff near the former townsite of Bridal Veil, Multnomah County, Oregon, this cemetery has been neglected at times throughout the past hundred years. The first known burial in the cemetery occurred in 1888, and the last in 1934. In 1958 the cemetery was described as being in "total neglect", with only four observable headstones. In 1964 the blackberries were beaten back and the first field survey was conducted. At that time, thirty-one stones were discovered, and additional unmarked graves were documented from town records and obituaries. A recent field survey (May 2000) by the Genealogical Forum of Oregon revealed forty-three tombstones, and the locations were mapped. The cemetery has been assumed by Multnomah County and a major renovation took place in October 2000.
