Amazing the cemetery is remaining this day and age! The information on site is great. Found guides providing additional information - enjoyed the visit. Unfortunately, the site needs some maintenance, but enjoyable all the same.

This is located right across the street from the super8 hotel(which I liked) It will only take a couple minutes to look at it but is worthwhile .There are a couple small structures and indents where the graves once were. Very cool.

We had heard about the Chinese cemetery and decided to stop by. It is just off I-84 in Baker City. It was interesting to find out about the history! This is a very small cemetery and a little overgrown in parts; however, there are paths you can walk on. They have recently added a new pagoda, which is really nice.... More

It is out of the way, but a must see to understand Baker Counties history. It is unfortunate that the State does not keep the site in a better state of repair out of respect for the remaining burials in the area. But, you step though time as you walk and read the information posted. You will leave with a... More

A fairly rustic, yet interesting site. It's also free. It's outdoors on a rough plot of land. With rustic signs detailing the history behind the cemetery and the contributions of Chinese laborers to the area where they worked mines and dug many of the irrigation ditches throughout the valley.

A patch of sage brush next to the highway with holes in the ground, cigarette butts in the prayer shrine, depressing. There r better places to learn about chinese culture.

There is actually nothing to see, no old graves. The bones were exumed and brought back to China.The windmill across the street is more interesting.

There isn't really much here; a sign, a tombstone, a pagoda, and empty graves.. But it is an interesting look into a part of Oregon history much ignored, the contributions of Chinese to the development of the state. Worth a quick stop.

Tucked away just off I-84 Exit 304, the Chinese Cemetery offers a window into an important piece of Western history. Chinese men worked the mines, railroads, laundries and restaurants of Eastern Oregon and faced discrimination and brutal working conditions. The cemetery has two reader boards, a pavilion, and a replica Prayer House. Most of the people buried here were exhumed... More
