This old family burial site is on main street, in front of the school
and across from the city pump house.
According to some of the residents of Maleny, when the land was purchased
by the school district, from the Dunlop family, the agreement was that
the burial site must remain along with the tree, which is situated in
front of the land, a short distance from the graves.
Since the stipulation was that the tree stay in front and the burial
site as it was, the tree now sits in the middle of main street. They
have split the street to route itt around the tree on either side. This
creates a very a unique situation.
The headstones are just inside a fence and so close they touch the
fence. Growth has all but covered these 2 stones. They can only be seen
from the sidewalk and the growth hides them in such a manner one would
easily walk by without noticing them.
