We walk here every day, the upslope walk from the little historic town is peaceful and delightful. There are many markers from the 1800's.

The cementary is up a hill near the school. It was larger than I expected. Many historical residents are interred. Many died young. Gold Rush life was tough and harsh.

If you enjoy old cemeteries then this one is definitely worth a stop if you are already in Columbia. The usual interesting grave markers and the occasional person who lived to be 80+ which must have been a really long life back in the day....More

I could have spent a couple of hours there! Fascinating! It is just above the school house and makes a nice extra walking tour beyond downtown Columbia. Not to miss -

The Cemetery had many grave sites that were surrounded by a wrought iron fence. I found that interesting and it played well in taking pictures of some of the sites.

Check this cemetery out! It's right next to the old school house. You'll get more out of the cemetery if you start in the museum and take in the history of the town before going up to the cemetery.

Perched on top a little hill, with great views. Rich in history, well kept grounds. Often you'll get to see Deer walk about. It is well worth your time.

I just love this old cemetery. I am not sure of the spelling! Fun to visit old town Columbia and then walk up to the school house and this cemetery. You can even google some of the deceased and read about their history. Drive to...More
