On this trip, I took my friends to see the little Cemetery. The history of this location is interesting, and it does not take very long to read the signs and realize the impact that the Chinese laborers had on the community and how they were treated.

The site is North of town and a bit hard to find. You need to take your time and be sure to have good footwear on. The site is not as well maintained as it would be with a bigger Chinese community presents where here in town. The history and tails this one site could tell if you just take... More

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.
