Cemetery History

Many of Dublin's pioneers were buried in the Dublin Pioneer Cemetery, which was established in 1859 with the burial of Tom Donlon. Tom Donlon fell to his death while helping construct Old St. Raymond's Church.

A walk along the path in the shade of giant oak and walnut trees takes visitors back in time. An easy history lesson can be obtained by reading the inscriptions on old tombstones and spending a few moments gleaning the facts from the family historical signs.
